Academic and Professional Certificate Programs

A degree-earning or noncredit certificate program may be an efficient way to advance your career.

  • Expand your expertise when the time commitment necessary to complete a bachelor’s or master’s degree is not an option.
  • Our programs are designed to fit into the schedules of busy professionals.
  • A certificate program offers in-depth knowledge and unique insights in specific fields of study.
  • Achieve specific career goals and acquaint yourself with the latest skills, knowledge and trends.
  • Academic (degree-earning) certificate students earn a diploma and college credit in semester hours.
  • Professional (noncredit) certificate students earn a certificate of completion and continuing education units.
