Typically, a certificate is earned by completing a set of limited, well-defined learning outcomes focused on new or emerging processes or new knowledge and principles applied to practical problems or issues.

Students may enroll in the certificates as a stand-alone program or in addition to their undergraduate [U] or graduate [G] major. Undergraduate students are ineligible for graduate-level [G] certificate programs.
