Designed for Professional Growth

Graduate-level certificates provide you with skills and insights you can put to immediate use in your current career. If you’re looking for longer term professional development, our for-credit, academic courses can serve you now and help you build capacity for the future. CLU certificates offer the exact same courses that are taught in the University’s master’s degree programs, so you can apply your credits toward a CLU graduate degree. You will receive the same quality instruction and engagement as our full-time students along with dual credit: a professional certificate and academic credit.

A certificate can be an affordable short-term career enhancement or the foundation of your master’s degree. Whether you hope to grow, pivot, advance, or change careers, a master’s degree can be a true differentiator. With our options for credit for prior learning and transferring certificate credits, you may be closer than you think!
