Students may be interested in gaining both a graduate degree and a certificate credential.
A certificate program is a formal program of courses and other related experiences in a field of specialization. In some disciplines, a certificate is akin to a professional credential, while in others, a certificate is recognition of competence in a given skill, practice, or field of study.
Certificate programs signify accomplishment, specialization, and achievement. All certificates awarded after successful completion in a certificate Program will result in an official remark on the student’s academic transcript.
