The Hobby School now offers four graduate certificates in public policy:
Graduate Certificate in Public Policy
Graduate Certificate in Public Policy and Public Administration
Graduate Certificate in Public Policy-Energy Policy
Graduate Certificate in Public Policy-Health Care PolicyGraduate certificates are an excellent way for students to earn an additional academic credential and relevant training in a shorter period of times compared to a full master's degree. These graduate certificates require four approved courses that can also be counted towards the Master of Public Policy degree if students later apply and join this program.
The Fall 2019 priority deadline is March 1, 2019. Applicants that submit an application prior to this deadline will receive priority consideration for Hobby School scholarships. The Fall 2019 application deadline is June 15, 2019.
The application process for the graduate certificates is similar to the MPP and completed entirely online via ApplyWeb.
Applicants must complete a UH Graduate School application and provide official transcripts of all college-level coursework with a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution, current resume, and a statement of purpose.
The GRE, letters of recommendation, and application fee are not required when applying for admission to the graduate certificates.
