Graduate Certificates are a way to delve into specialized areas of public administration theory and practice. They are structured to provide a condensed version of the specific skills and knowledge to advance in particular professional fields.
Most certificates can be earned in conjunction with your graduate degree or as a stand-alone certification. Pursuing a graduate certificate as part of a graduate degree is as simple as focusing your elective coursework into one of the below specialized areas:
- City and County Management
- Performance Management
- Environmental Studies
- Foundations of Project Management
- Museum Studies
- Professional Workplace Communication
By successfully completing a prescribed group of courses encompassing twelve credit hours, you can earn a graduate certificate. Courses taken in a graduate certificate program and recognition of the earned certificate will be posted on your transcript.
