Graduate Certificates

Graduate certificates are designed to provide you with valuable educational experience in a more accessible, focused format than traditional graduate degree programs.

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

Certificates generally take one-two years to complete, depending on course load per semester and course schedule offerings. 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.
