Certificate Programs

The purpose of a graduate certificate is to enhance marketability of students, confirm special skills or knowledge acquired by students, and provide educational opportunities and continuing education to otherwise unserved segments of the community through short-term graduate programs. The certificate program is designed to provide a certification of specialization to individuals who already possess a bachelor's degree.
