Graduate Certificate Program
What is the Graduate Certificate?
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.
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.

The Women's Studies Graduate Certificate was approved in 2006 by the Texas Tech University Graduate School, TTU Academic Council, and the State of Texas Coordinating Board.
