Most certificates have several classes to choose from, along with a 1-hour presentations course.  Unlike a minor, courses that you take for your major can “double-dip” for certificates.  Additionally, some students who want to pursue more than one certificate and courses can double dip there as well!

We require a grade of C or better for certificate courses.

Certificates are a great way to distinguish yourself and build a resume that gets noticed!
