Certificate in Individualized Studies
JDMorris Center, Room 413
The individualized graduate certificate, offered by the Graduate College at Missouri State University, is a 12 credit hour program and provides a graduate-level experience for those who find that formally designed options from existing programs do not meet their unique, creative and professional needs, or those seeking growth and advancement within their vocations. The certificate program allows students to expand their knowledge and experiences consistent with their professional goals and objectives in one or more areas.
This graduate certificate will benefit anyone who needs to acquire focused skills, launch a new career unrelated to his/her undergraduate degree and/or retool and update knowledge. The certificate offers a short, focused program of study giving students advanced skills in a particular subject not formally offered and provides continuing education credit opportunities in many careers. In addition, the credit hours earned may apply toward an advanced degree.
NOTE: This certificate program is not eligible for federal financial aid.
