Noncredit Certificate Programs

Invest in yourself! Certificate programs are a new approach to education for students and adult learners wherever they are in their life and career journey. A certificate program offers specialized training in a skill-set immediately transferable to a position or industry. In short, a certificate program allows you to stay nimble in an evolving world, making you more valuable. Credentials matter!

Compared to a degree plan, a certificate program is relatively short-term (months versus years) and lower in cost. The curriculum is also more intentional (no prerequisites, no general education), delivering direct relevance to the marketplace. The programs are 100% online, allowing you to balance work, family and education. (You can expect 2-3 hours each week of self-study and interaction.)

Certificate programs deliver:

Speedier Professional Gratification

Your pathway to continuing education may include certificate programs and a degree. Rethinking education means you can accomplish one or both in the order that is right for you in the moment. A certificate program can allow you to respond to a potential career or industry opportunity. It can also be the ramp-up to completing a degree, inspiring yourself and others. Both deliver valuable credentials that can contribute to your quality of life and earning capacity but also showcase your unique and compelling educational journey.
