Certifications

At the School of Education, we are committed to producing education leaders and to providing timely, relevant and rigorous programs of study based on the latest trends and developments in the field of education. The School of Education offers a number of programs with certifications that acknowledges the completion of a series of courses leading to a body of knowledge in a specific area and a university recommendation to the state of choice.

Most of the certificate programs are an outgrowth of our master’s degrees with all courses bearing graduate credits.
