Certificates are shorter programs that may involve credit courses, non-credit courses or a combination of credit and non-credit programs.
Non-credit programs and courses are designed for professional development and can be completed more quickly than those for credit. They are not part of any degree program. Non-credit Certificate programs increase your professional skills and accreditation.
