Post-Baccalaureate University Certificate Programs

University Certificate Programs are academic-credit Certificate Programs designed to provide an integrated and focused program of study in selected academic fields. Designed to allow those in different majors to add an area of professional expertise to their Credentials, University Certificates are added and updated to offer highly valued fields of study in the contemporary marketplace. They also allow those with advanced degrees to add fields of study to their academic record, thus allowing them to enrich or shift their career options or advance in their current professions.

Those who complete University Certificate Programs successfully have the award of the University Certificate noted on their transcripts and they are issued a formal University Certificate approved by the Office of Graduate Studies and signed by the University President. The Post- Baccalaureate University Certificates currently offered are listed below.
