Our curricula are based on a compilation of online lectures relating to global health and related areas. CGI is most indebted to and with big thanks for our good friend Jennifer Staple-Clark, founder of Unite for Sight, and profiled in Dr. Stout's book The New Humanitarians, Vol. 1, for making much of the content used herein available on their site and is open access, meaning that you may freely read, download, distribute, and use the material, as long as all of the work is properly cited. You rock Jen!
The Certificate Programs are designed to provide students, educators, physicians, public health professionals, psychologists, and other individuals with a comprehensive understanding about the complexities and realities of conducting global work.
Benefits of the Certificate Programs
Scholars who complete the requirements for a certification will receive a Certificate in the area of study and a transcript. Students will learn how to apply knowledge and skills to current or future work in global health and international issues. The Center will provide letters of recommendation upon request for students completing any Certificate Program.
Following enrollment, students gain access to the online submission system where they will submit essays about each module of the online courses taken. Each response is then evaluated, and the Student receives an evaluation of Honors, Pass, Low Pass, or Fail on their transcript.
Honors: Responses are of excellent quality, demonstrating critical analysis and a comprehensive understanding about the course material.
Pass: Responses provide summaries that are of good quality, but there is little additional thought or analysis.
Low Pass: Responses provide summaries that are of mediocre quality and demonstrate minimal effort.
Fail: Responses are of poor quality and demonstrate a lack of effort or lack of understanding and no credit is given. If the student wishes to gain credit for a failed course, they must retake it and gain a score better than Fail.
Each essay will be read and evaluated and upon successful completion of all the required courses, you will be granted your Certification. After you enroll, there is no deadline for completion, and you may work on the coursework at your own pace, however we do strongly encourage you to submit your completed coursework at your earliest convenience.
