Never Stop Learning

CONTINUING EDUCATION & CERTIFICATES

Continuing Education & Certificates

Whether you're looking to advance your skills or fulfill requirements for licensure, the School of Education offers varying levels of continuing education courses. Classes are frequently on demand and self-paced, which means you complete all coursework online, on your schedule. Educators can also receive CEUs toward licensure renewal requirements for some courses.

Helping your students thrive in the classroom means staying up to date on the latest in the field of education. Our certificate programs are a great fit for educators looking to expand their knowledge in a specific content area or explore a new one. Our certificates correspond to our wide variety of licensure and master's degree options and are often completed in 12-16 credits (3-4 classes).
