The certificate programs provide students with both specialized and focused study and increased marketability in their respective fields. Students enrolled in the certificate programs take specialized course tracks and receive mentoring and guidance from faculty certificate advisors. Faculty certificate advisors have discretion to certify that particular work satisfies requirements, including requirements for a certificate with honors. Certificate program faculty advisors would have the discretion, for good cause, to alter the written certificate requirements in specific cases.
Students interested in a specific certificate program should contact the program advisor to discuss the program and its requirements. First-year students are encouraged to begin researching the certificate programs in the spring semester of their first year of study.
