Postbaccalaureate and Graduate Credit Certificate Programs

Postbaccalaureate and graduate credit certificate programs are innovations that reflect emerging academic areas, and may be supplements or enhancements to existing degree programs. These credit certificate programs are designed to foster development of an area of specialty or competency within a discipline and flexibility is essential to accommodate the parameters of the discipline as well as the educational needs of the students. The programs consist of a sequence, pattern, or group of courses developed, supervised, and evaluated by the faculty members of the academic unit offering the program.
