Graduate Certificate in Higher Education

About

The Graduate Certificate in Higher Education targets full or part-time graduate students who may not have studied higher education through any formal degree program but wish to develop a deeper understanding of higher education. In particular doctoral students enrolled in other disciplines who plan to enter the academy as tenure track faculty members, as well as current administrative professionals who already possess an undergraduate degree and have 2-3 years full-time experience in higher education, may also benefit from this experience. Hours earned for the certificate may be applied to a degree program in higher education at the masters or doctoral levels. Hours earned in the masters or doctorate programs in higher education may NOT be used toward the certificate. Certificate Requirements are 15 credit hours.
