About this Program

Certificates must contain at least nine credits of coursework that are unique to that program out of all other certificates and minors.

Because the issues we face are radically different than the issues addressed by traditional educational models, this program is outside of the normal bounds of a disciplinary degree or a semester-long course. Students earning the certificate will be engaged in high level, complex problem solving which will create a strong professional foundation for success in a variety of fields.
