SoPA and Tulane University are excited to announce the transition back to campus for the fall semester. While we encourage students to continue to meet with advisors, faculty and staff remotely, our offices will be open for limited in-person visits. Beginning Monday August 3, Elmwood offices are open 8:30A.M.– 5:00P.M. Gibson Hall offices will remain closed as Tulane renovates new space for SoPA on the Uptown campus. All faculty and staff are working and available.

Undergraduate & Graduate Certificates at Tulane SoPA
SoPA offers credit-bearing certificate 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 towards 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 certificates) these certificates incorporate all of the coursework required for an undergraduate major.
Undergraduate Professional Certificates provide an efficient and effective means for students to retool for new careers or bring additional areas of focus into their current employment. Each certificate requires only 12 or 15 credits (4 or 5 classes), depending upon your chosen field, so you can add a new skillset in just a semester or two. Talk to your advisor for specific requirements.
