Graduate Certificates

The purpose for offering graduate certificates is to meet the supplemental education needs of professionals. As jobs and job-related responsibilities change, a person often needs additional training in a specific area. For example, an architect who once thought s/he would design new buildings may become involved in preservation of historical districts. If this architect had not taken any historical preservation courses for the primary degree, a graduate certificate in Historic Preservation would provide needed knowledge. Providing graduate certificates for workforce development is a high priority for the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. A graduate certificate program is a set of courses that provides in-depth knowledge in a subject matter. The knowledge in the set of courses should provide a coherent knowledge base even if the courses are selected from more than one academic program. The set of courses may be more practice-oriented than the set of courses in a graduate academic program. Departments that wish to develop new certificate programs should consult the Graduate School Graduate Certificate Development page. Students intending to complete a Graduate Certificate program should use the following forms: For more details about individual certificate programs, see the TTU Catalog Graduate Certificate Programs page.
