What is the difference between a certificate and a graduate certificate?
An undergraduate certificate will offer undergraduate courses (100-400 level). Additionally, most undergraduate certificates do not require that you have earned a college degree. Undergraduate certificates are usually used to acquire expertise in a particular area where only a certificate is needed. Bachelor’s graduates may also want to gain undergraduate coursework in an area other than their major.
A graduate certificate will offer master’s courses (500-600 level), and a bachelor’s degree is typically required for admission. Graduate certificates are typically used for professional development or a jumpstart to a master’s program. Sometimes companies require that their employees complete a graduate certificate for a responsibility change, promotion, or salary increase.
Is a graduate certificate the same as a master’s?
No, earning a graduate certificate does not mean you have obtained a master’s degree. However, a graduate certificate will contain master’s coursework. Here are some reasons why a graduate certificate may be right for you:
- A graduate certificate can be a requirement in some workplaces for professional development or a pay increase.
- A graduate certificate can help you decide if it’s time for a career change.
- The credit earned in your graduate certificate may transfer to a master’s program, giving you a jumpstart on a new degree.
Why should I pursue a Graduate Certificate in Marketing?
