Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Programs

How is a Certificate Different from a Degree? 

Associate and bachelor's degrees typically range from two to four years. They include general education requirements along with specialized courses in your specific major. Certificates are much shorter programs specializing in a specific area with no requirements for classes outside the program. 

Why Earn a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate?

Certificates are a great way to learn a new skill or master a subject area. You can use what you learn in a current position, become better qualified for advancement or increase your understanding of a particular topic.
