Graduate Certificate Programs

The Department of Human Development and Family Science offers graduate certificates in three areas:  Developmental Disabilities, Family Financial Planning, and Infant Mental Health.

Why pursue a graduate certificate rather than a graduate degree?

A graduate certificate may be a good option if you…

  • Have earned an undergraduate degree and want to gain specialized knowledge in an area of professional importance or personal interest
  • Need to quickly gain a specific professional credential in order to advance in your career
  • Are a professional who is considering a master’s degree but don’t want to commit until you know which area of study is right for you
  • Want to gain new skill sets to change careers

Developmental Disabilities Graduate Certificate

Family Financial Planning Graduate Certificate

Infant Mental Health Graduate Certificate

Note: All of the credits in these graduate certificates will count as progress towards a MS degree in Human Development and Family Science in the “Applied Human Services” degree option.
