The 13-credit Certificate in Healthy Cities provides University of Michigan graduate students with a mechanism to study the interdisciplinary relationships linking policy making, health science, and spatial planning in a systematic, focused manner. The certificate program in Healthy Cities offers students a roadmap for integrating discussions of the social, physical, and political determinants of urban public health.
Ready to graduate?
Step 1: Apply to Graduate
All certificate students must apply to graduate from their certificate program. If you are also enrolled in a degree program, you will submit two applications to graduate – one for your degree program and one for your certificate.
Step 2: Complete Dual/Joint Degree Election Form
This step is only for students completing a certificate in addition to a degree. Those completing only the certificate as a standalone can disregard this section.
You’ll need to list the courses to be applied to your degree program on one side and the courses for your Healthy Cities Certificate on the other. Any courses being double-counted, should appear on both sides and be designated with a DC.
- If your degree is also a Taubman College program: Fill out the form and submit it to TaubmanCollegeAdvising@umich.edu. We will obtain the required signatures for you and submit the completed form to Rackham.
- If your degree is not a Taubman College program: Fill out the form and submit it to TaubmanCollegeAdvising@umich.edu first. We will obtain the required signature for your certificate and return the form to you for submission to your other school/unit.
If you have any questions while filling out the form, contact your academic advisor(s) for one or both of your programs.
