The purpose of the certificate is to encourage students, at the undergraduate and graduate levels, to obtain a minimal level of expertise in the study of spirituality and health issues. The certificate will serve to recognize students who have taken at least 9 semester credit hours in coursework sponsored (or co-sponsored) by the Center for Spirituality and Health. Any interested student who is registered at UF may earn the certificate; no specific major department is necessary.
The process for obtaining a certificate is as follows:
The student who wishes to obtain a Certificate in Spirituality and Health will:
- Write an email request to the Associate Director (Ana Puig email@example.com ). The request should include the following:
- The course titles and grades obtained in the 9 semester credit hours of lecture courses. Note, non-lecture courses, such as Independent Study typically do not count toward the certificate. The student must earn at least a B in each course for it to count toward these credit hours.
- Include the student’s full name (as s/he wishes it to appear on the certificate), current and permanent address where the certificate may be mailed, telephone number and e-mail address.
The Associate Director will:
Assess the requests for certificates, verify the minimal requirements and present the list of students to the Center Director for approval.
The Center Director will:
Maintain, record and sign the certificates and have the certificates delivered to the students.
