Description:Our diplomas in Health: Science, Technology and Policy address a growing need in the public health field to hire employees who can apply their knowledge of policy-related issues in the health field to the workplace.

We offer two related HSTP diplomas: 1) Diploma for professional development (for individuals working or intending to work in the health sector). This diploma is for individuals currently employed, or with the goal of employment in the health sector, who are not currently registered in another Carleton graduate program. Please note: We do not offer courses on the weekends or online. 2) Diploma for current Carleton students. This diploma has been designed to offer students registered in various graduate programs at Carleton the opportunity to take relevant health courses that complement their primary degree, and provides an additional credential. Students will supplement their disciplinary expertise with a fundamental understanding of qualitative and quantitative research methods, policy, and knowledge mobilization, particularly as they apply to the health sector. Please note: We do not offer courses on the weekends or online.
