Program distinctives:

  • Four course (12 credit) graduate certificates that can be earned with less than a year of part-time study.
  • Affordable pricing. $4,134 for the whole program.*
  • Convenient online courses designed for the schedules of working adults.
  • Engaging instructors who have experience in their fields of study.
  • Coursework that is applicable to your work context.

Crown Graduate Certificates are designed especially for:

  • Professionals with experience in their field who need advanced training or credentialing.
  • Leaders who have a Master’s degree in another field, but want to do more focused studies that are more directly applicable to their work.
  • Learners who want to try graduate work without committing to a full 36 hour Master’s degree program.  (Graduate Certificates can transfer into several of Crown’s Master’s degree programs for those who want to continue.)
