About this Program

Certificates must comply with the Certificate Policy.

Enroll in UF’s artificial intelligence certificate program where all undergraduate students, regardless of major, can learn how to apply artificial intelligence in their discipline. No background in computer programming, engineering, or data science is needed. Pursuing courses in AI can put students ahead of the curve when applying for internships or jobs. Students can obtain the skills needed to join the AI-trained workforce of the future.

This university-wide certificate prepares students to understand the fundamentals of artificial intelligence, its applications to real-world problems in various disciplines, and ethical and professional responsibilities of these technologies. The certificate consists of two required courses, a fundamental course and an AI ethics course. After completing those, students take a third elective course in the application of ethics in their discipline. Students learn how to use AI and apply them to maximize efficiency or solve problems within their discipline.

To obtain this certificate, students must apply before they take the second course.
