Expand Your Content Knowledge with a Graduate Certificate
Take the next step on your education career path with a Graduate Certificate from the School of Education. These shorter programs of study include 4-6 courses that you can complete in a relatively short amount of time compared to a degree program. You can earn a stand-alone certificate, and in some cases, the courses serve as concentrations in our educational leadership programs.
These short and focused programs allow you to gain expertise quickly, so you can put your new skills and knowledge to work in the classroom. Classes are taught by faculty who are both experts in their field as well as real-world practitioners. We offer certificates in subjects ranging from learning technology to special education, in addition to other topics.
Our Graduate Certificates offer an opportunity for current teachers and administrators to gain knowledge in a specific content area. Certificate courses also count toward concentrations in some of our educational leadership programs.
