Certificate Curriculum & Requirements
The Certificate requires a minimum of 21 credits, including four required courses, the practicum, and at least six credits of elective courses. To begin the practicum process, please complete the Scope and Schedule form at the bottom of the page. This form should be completed as soon as you identify a practicum project; it is only the first step of many that must be completed before you can complete your practicum.
Upon completion of the course and practicum requirements, the student must submit a Notification of Completion to HPM_Certificates@jhu.edu. The studen'ts transcript will not indicate that the certificate was earned until the Notification of Completion has been submitted, verified by the certificate program, and processed by the Registrar's Office. Please note that the registrar's office only processes forms at the completion of 2nd, 4th, and Summer Terms.
All required and elective courses must be taken for a letter grade and a 2.75 or better overall GPA for all certificate courses is required. Requirements must be completed within a three-year period.
