Maternal and Child Health - Certificate
The Graduate Certificate in Maternal and Child Health (MCH) develops students' MCH competencies, enabling graduates to improve health service delivery to all mothers, children, and families. This certificate focuses on the foundations of MCH, such as understanding Title V programs, health disparities in MCH, life-course approach and general knowledge about MCH populations and common public health concerns. This is an interdisciplinary certificate that partners with departments across the Texas A&M School of Public Health, including the College of Education and Human Development and the Bush School of Government and Public Service. This allows the MCH certificate to offer electives in areas ranging from reproductive and perinatal epidemiology to the impact of policy and security on women’s health.
