Graduate Certificates

Some of our graduate students pursue Graduate Certificates as part of their curriculum when earning the certificate is beneficial for achieving depth in the student’s specified area of expertise or in developing breadth in a specialized area relevant to the student's interests.  Past students have earned certificates in areas such as Women's and Gender Studies and Gerontology. Some certificate programs, such as that in Human Factors of Transportation Safety, include research and internship opportunities as well as coursework.
