Graduate Certificates

Graduate certificates are for those who already hold at least a Bachelor’s degree but want graduate-level coursework in the same or another specialization. Often, those who hold graduate degrees will take advantage of these programs to add graduate semester hours (typically 18) to obtain the academic achievement needed to teach college-level courses.

These programs also attract those currently pursuing a graduate degree who wish to specialize in a concentration (typically 9 graduate semester hours) or require additional hours to reach the 18 credit hours needed to complete a Master’s Degree. For example, an MBA graduate whose curriculum was in general business but whose interests and/or employment include Forensic Accounting and Fraud Examination or Cybersecurity, could take the certificate as an “add-on” to their master’s degree and meet the typical minimum qualification to teach in that selected discipline.

Lastly, Grad certificates can be taken as stand-alone credentials for advancement in one’s career or to provide a vehicle for skills and knowledge updating.

Examples of Graduate Certificates

  • Cybersecurity
  • Database Management
  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Leadership
