Flexibility: Pursue Professional Development

Enhance your current degree by earning a certificate from the comfort of your office or home, viewing lectures at your convenience. Off-campus students enroll in the same classes as on-campus students. Both follow the same syllabus and schedule and, with few exceptions, complete the same course work.
