SoPA offers credit-bearing certificates programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in several fields. Courses in each of these certificates are also offered as part of a bachelor’s or master’s degree.
Graduate Certificates of four courses each provide you with a base of knowledge of industry practice in a specific field of study. Certificates may also be used toward a SoPA master’s degree.
Post-Baccalaureate Certificates, also made up of undergraduate courses, are for individuals who have already earned a bachelor’s degree. With one exception (teacher certification) these certificates incorporate all of the coursework required for an undergraduate major.
Undergraduate Professional Certificates vary in the number of required courses. Several of them align with industry association certifications and may be used to meet course and credit hour requirements for industry certification.
