Does Getting a Graduate Certificate
During my Master Degree Benefit Me?
Many master degree programs allow 12 hours of advisor approved electives. With proper planning this allows you to earn two credentials at the same time: a graduate certificate in a specialized area and a master degree. Often, earning the certificate as part of the master's program can save you some or all of the hours. There are several graduate certificates available, including eight online graduate certificates. Below you will find an examples of how graduate certificates may work as part of your larger master's program.
Please note: A maximum of 12 credit hours may be duplicated between the master's program and graduate certificate.
