Nicholson Academic Student Services Center (NASSC)
The Certificate in Health Communication has a dual focus: 1) it is designed to provide students in health-related fields training in facilitating health communication processes; and 2) it allows communication students to demonstrate that they have conceptual and applied knowledge about the role of communication in health care.
Certificates will be awarded only at the time of degree completion.
Most courses for this certificate will have prerequisites completed as a part of a student’s GEP requirement, as general electives, or a student can enroll into courses with consent of instructor.
Additional restricted electives can be taken as approved by an advisor.
Foreign Language Requirements
Total Undergraduate Credit Hours Required: 15
No more than three credit hours from the Health Communication Certificate may be used to satisfy internal restricted electives of the Human Communication major. (Note: The myKnight Audit cannot capture overlapping courses between two or more programs; therefore, students should have their program reviewed by the School before filing for graduation.)
Communication majors must take their elective outside of NSCM.
