What is a Graduate Certificate?

The Belk College offers two types of certificate programs. The first type allows Master’s trained lifelong learners to return to the classroom to update and expand their skills and knowledge. The second type consists of a subset of courses required for a master’s degree. Taking these courses will give you exposure to the advanced knowledge offered in a master’s program without committing to the full program. These certificates allow you to apply any certificate credit hours earned and easily transition into the associated master’s program.
