Graduate Certificates

Graduate certificates are designed as options for students who hold a baccalaureate degree or a master's degree and who want to enroll in a part-time, short, coherent course of study at the graduate level. Those who may not be ready to commit to a full-length graduate program, as well as those who already hold a graduate degree but want to pursue additional work in the same or another field, may find that a certificate provides the perfect alternative.
