On-Campus Graduate Certificates

Innovative Education offers more than 100 graduate certificates – including fully online, partially online, and on-campus options – in a variety of fields. These certificates are designed to provide you with valuable educational experiences in a more accessible, focused format than traditional graduate degree programs.

The certificate is a specialized graduate-level credential reflecting knowledge of the most up-to-date research in the field. Once completed, the certificate is notated on the transcripts, and a certificate diploma is awarded to the student. Certificate completion increases your competitiveness, enhances your performance, and helps prepare you for the changing nature of business.

Certificates take one-two years to completed, depending on course load per semester and course schedule offerings. You may also be able to transfer up to 12 credits; contact your program advisor to learn more.

Some certificates can be used to meet some of the requirements of a graduate program, depending on the policies of the degree program and the university. Completion of a certificate does not imply admission to a related program.
