The College of Education offers two types of Certificate Programs.
Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS) is offered to provide an intensive, cohesive program of professional development for educational specialists beyond the master's level. It requires an academic-specific specialty area, without the extended commitment and formal examination of the doctoral program. It is not a University degree program but a College of Education certificate program. The certificate is awarded upon completion of a 30-credit-hour program of study beyond the master's degree. All 30 credits must be taken at the University within a four-year period, and at least 15 credits must be taken in the College of Education. A minimum of 18 credits used toward fulfillment of the CAGS requirement must be at or above the 600 level.
Certificate Programs which range from 15-18 credits that offer a sequence of courses which have a clear educational objective to be achieved in an efficient and defined manner. Currently, we offer a Certificate in Social Justice Education and a Certificate in Higher Education Leadership & Management (HELMs).
