The Graduate School / Academics & Research / Graduate Certificate Programs

Graduate Certificate Programs

The graduate certificate programs, ranging from 12 to 21 credit hours, are designed to allow students to take courses in an area of specialization, enhancing their academic and professional experience.

The Way It Works

Students may work towards a graduate certificate in addition to pursuing a master’s or doctoral degree or students may enroll in stand-alone graduate certificate programs for the purpose of personal and professional development. In some programs, certificate program course credit can be applied toward a graduate degree.

ALL graduate certificate program students must have achieved a cumulative 3.0 (B) grade point average in all graduate certificate courses attempted in order for the graduate certificate to be granted.
