The Diabetes Certificate Program is a 17 credit hour program that offers a unique, interdisciplinary opportunity for undergraduate students to become more familiar with diabetes and its management. Highlights of the certificate include a series of three courses: an online course, "Diabetes: From Bench to Beside," a seminar, "Trends in Diabetes" and an independent study in diabetes. Students will also have a choice of interdisciplinary electives representing Anthropology, Child and Family Studies, Social and Public Health, Psychology, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Communications, and Nutrition. Students will also be given unique opportunities for service learning and clinical and/or research experience. This program reaches beyond the classroom, providing students an opportunity to become more familiar with diabetes as it becomes more prevalent locally and nationally.
