Online graduate certificate programs might offer a level of specificity equivalent to a degree program, or else provide a focused study of a particular subject. They can last anywhere from several days to a number of years.

What is an online graduate certificate? Online learning is available at many levels, from vocational training to advanced research positions. In fact, many subjects that require fieldwork are done at least partly through correspondence, and have been for quite some time. Today, one might expect to pursue courses in anything from education to sustainable energy at the graduate level online. A graduate certificate is often only granted to students who have completed coursework equaling that required by an undergraduate degree program. Regardless of entry requirements, students might do well to expect a challenging curriculum.

These certificate programs often offer unique opportunities to expand a student's network by giving access to experts in a field of interest. Some certificates might be eligible for conversion to a degree, but it is advisable to contact the administration at each prospective institution before assuming this is the case.

The cost of a graduate certificate often depends on several factors, such as the institution that offers the program. The topic of study, length of the course and even the country in which the institution is based might also change the tuition.

Statistically speaking, individuals with more advanced education tend to proceed further along their career paths. An online graduate certificate is an increasingly popular method by which students are pursuing their personal and professional goals. Graduate certificates may assist students in their goals to access higher levels in academia as well by lending credibility during admission processes for prestigious post-graduate programs, for example.

With the wide range of graduate studies offered through online certificate programs, continuing your education or advancing your career may be more accessible than you realized. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
