Human sexuality, gender roles, and sexual behavior are an integral part of health care, social sciences, biological sciences, and culture. Broadening human sexuality education for a wider professional audience meets this unique, nonclinical need and prepares you to bring applied solutions to real-world sexual health crises. 

This post-baccalaureate certificate is offered in partnership between the Medical School's Program in Human Sexuality and the College of Continuing and Professional Studies.  Coursework can apply toward partial fulfillment of AASECT Sexuality Educator certification.


The certificate consists of 12 credits. Maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA for all degree coursework to remain in good standing.
