Graduate Certificate Programs

Extended Studies offers graduate certificate programs to serve the needs of individuals interested in developing specific skills and knowledge for personal and/or professional development.

Graduate certificate programs are credit-based, taught by qualified graduate faculty and are aligned with existing graduate education curricula.

Certificate programs are often chosen by students who do not wish to pursue a master’s or doctoral degree. Courses completed during a certificate program may be applied toward degree requirements with the approval of the appropriate degree curriculum manager and the appropriate division director.
