Graduate Certificates

The graduate certificate programs offer focused academic training in specific areas. The certificate programs require less time and coursework than a degree, making them appealing to working professionals who want to focus on a specialized area over a shorter period of time.  Graduate certificates normally qualify for employer tuition reimbursement just as a full master’s degree does.
