Advanced Certificates

Advanced certificates are four, three credit courses selected from the graduate curriculum. Completing all four courses provides you with an Advanced Certificate delivering an in-depth knowledge or expertise in a particular area. Often certificates are used to enhance past learning or to acquire a new skill. It is not unusual for those who already have an MS degree in another field to enroll in a certificate to acquire new knowledge and earn a stackable credential to add to their personal resume.     

Advanced certificates are open to qualified students who meet the requirements for graduate study (please refer to admission requirements.) Certificates may be completed as a stand-alone credential, or serve as an entry point for Masters degree programs. RIT students may qualify to use individual courses or the certificate as a whole in other RIT graduate programs with the appropriate approvals.
