Certificates & Certifications

Within the Graduate Division of the College of Education, we offer two types of non-degree programs – professional certification, necessary to be licensed and/or practice at an advanced level in your chosen career and Graduate Certificates, which provide an additional credential in your field of study but do not necessarily lead to licensure. Graduate certificates can also be used as an introduction into your chosen master's degree program. Learn more about our certificates.
