Licensure and Certificates

Licensure and certificate programs can enable individuals to gain relevant, in-demand knowledge and skill-sets for their careers without, in many cases, needing to matriculate into full-scale bachelor’s or master’s programs.

They are especially convenient for those unwilling or unable to invest in years of additional study. Certificate programs are often short—12 months or less—and can be taken while you’re already engaged in a career. Licensures are typically supplements to programs already undertaken—and are in some cases necessary for practicing in a given field. Some master’s degrees fulfill a particular licensure requirement.
