Why Yale?

Silliman College Archway

Since its founding in 1701, Yale has been dedicated to expanding and sharing knowledge, inspiring innovation, and educating leaders. Distance learning is the newest tool to achieve these aims.

For over a decade, Yale has been a leader in educating students remotely: posting its courses online, offering Open Online Courses in a wide variety of subjects, launching international executive education programs, and online degrees. 

And now, the Yale School of Public Health is pleased to offer the first online certificate program in climate change and health sponsored by a US school of public health. The school has a long and distinguished history of education, innovation, and impact. Led by the Yale Climate Change and Health Initiative, the certificate uses state of the art production facilities, advanced education tools, and outstanding faculty, to provide students with an unparalleled opportunity to learn and create change.
