Students in our certificate programs are taught fully online over one year through three 14-week semesters. Students from around the globe learn from the school's renowned faculty, collaborate and network with fellow students, and receive expert, career-advancing instruction on a schedule compatible with the needs of busy students.
Online courses at the Friedman School are characterized by small class sizes and engaged, knowledgeable faculty members. Our online courses are highly interactive
and students can expect their teachers to be not just a lecturer, but facilitators of student learning and active participants. While the Friedman School Online Graduate Certificate
Program courses do allow students flexibility and convenience, they are not self-paced. Each student is expected to login regularly, participate in all course activities, and meet their assignment deadlines.
Upon completion of each course, students will earn graduate academic credit, which may be applied towards a degree program. Please check with the specific school and program in which you are interested to verify whether they will accept all of the credits you want to transfer. Students who successfully complete three courses within our certificate program will earn a certificate of graduate studies.
