Priceless education and connections

The certificate programs offer an alternative route to acquiring career skills and to furthering a student’s educational experience. Clusters of courses introduce students to a few related subjects within an area of specialization, such as management, early childhood education, human services, case management, and computer information systems. These certificate programs have proven popular with students choosing to master certain subjects before moving into a degree program. Since the certificate courses are applicable to degree requirements, students can take time to develop their skills and confidence prior to matriculation into a degree program. In addition, these programs offer the opportunity to become acquainted with a career field, particularly in those professional areas experiencing rapid growth and seeking well-prepared personnel.
