Professional Certificates

Choose a certificate program from one of thirteen specialized areas of study. Based on the latest developments and industry best practices, our programs offer undergraduate degree-applicable credit — but you don't have to be a degree-seeking student to enroll. In fact, some of our certificate students have already completed their degrees and simply want to pursue a specialization.




Custom Instruction

From degree-earning Pathway programs to workshops and on-site training, we can design a program that meets your specific needs.

Recent examples include programs that lead to undergraduate degrees for employees of United Technology Corporation, Hydraflow, and Firefighters First Credit Union. We even developed and delivered a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for Business workshop in Genoa, Italy, for an international cruise line.
