Online graduate certificate programs are designed for those who have completed or are currently enrolled in a master's or a doctoral degree program.
A graduate certificate allows you to study a specific subject or skill at the graduate level without taking an entire graduate degree program. You can focus on the subjects you need in order to advance in your career without taking classes you don't need. A graduate certificate program can also help you meet requirements for certification or provide continuing education credits in your profession.
Online graduate certificates are available in a wide variety of fields that include Educational technology, Accounting, Business, Information Security, Health Services Management, Occupational Safety and Health, Software Engineering among others.
Graduate certificate programs are not the same as graduate degree programs. If you are considering enrolling in a graduate degree program, check with the school to see they will accept credits from your graduate certificates.
Most subjects taught in traditional graduate certification programs are also taught in certificate programs online. Online graduate certificate programs are excellent options for adults who have fulltime work or family responsibilities. You can complete your online graduate certificate program from a school in another state without having to leave your home or office. You can complete your coursework whenever your schedule allows and get the same quality of education as traditional classroom students.
