Program Overview

Certificates are for people who want to train for a job rather than to earn a college degree. In some cases, however, a certificate can pave the way to college because certain programs’ credits count toward a future degree. And for some people, certificate programs help them prepare for licensure, certification, or other career-related qualifications

This certificate option opens the door to a higher level of engagement with the community whether you seek to enhance knowledge or open a business.
