Certificate Programs

The School of Social Service Administration (SSA) offers two certificate programs for master’s-level students. The Certificate in Global Social Development Practice (GSDP), which is open to SSA students only and the Graduate Program in Health Administration and Policy (GPHAP) which is open to students accepted into one of the participating schools: The Booth School of Business, the Harris School of Public Policy, the Law School, the Pritzker School of Medicine, and SSA.

The Certificate in Global Social Development Practice (GSDP) program is for students who are committed to assume leadership in the development and provision of policies, programs, and practices that address problems in the international social development arena.

The Graduate Program in Health Administration and Policy (GPHAP) allows students to earn either a Certificate in Health Administration and Policy or a Certificate in Health Administration and Policy with a Concentration in Global Health. This program is for students who want to become leaders in health care and who desire interdisciplinary training in policy, management, finance, and social service delivery.

Please note that the GSDP program has a February deadline for applications and the GPHAP program has a September deadline. Please review each program’s application pages carefully. Only students who are accepted into the appropriate University of Chicago master’s program may apply and both of these deadlines occur prior to fall matriculation.
