The Professional Studies Certificate is an end in itself for some students. For others, it may be applied toward the 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.
A graduate certificate is ideal for students who want to upgrade their skills and improve their competitiveness on the job market, but who are not ready to commit to a master's program yet.
The Woods College offers undergraduate students the atmosphere of a small college within the environment of a large university. The professional staff at the Woods College has experience helping students arrange a realistic program of study, one that combines work responsibilities with educational goals.
Whether you’re taking the next step in your current field or transitioning into a new one, our cutting-edge graduate programs meet you where you are—so you can get to where you want to be.
