Professional Studies Certificate


The Professional Studies Certificate is an end in itself for some students. For others, it may be applied toward completion of a bachelor’s degree. Whatever your ultimate goal - whether it's to qualify for a promotion, initiate a career change, or earn an undergraduate degree -  a Professional Studies Certificate can help you reach your potential. 



Certificate requirements:

  • Students must earn a grade of C or better for each course credited toward the certificate.
  • Certificate requirements must be completed within two years of initial enrollment; courses are permanently retained on the student record.
  • Current degree students, including international students, may complete a certificate as part of their program. Non-U.S. citizens are not eligible for enrollment in a certificate program unless they are currently enrolled in a Woods College degree program.
  • Current degree students interested in adding a certificate to their plan of study should not use the online application. If you are a current Woods student, declare your certificate here.
