A graduate certificate program is a stand-alone credential consisting of 12-15 credit hours of graduate coursework in a specific field of study. Individuals with a graduate certificate or post-graduate master’s certificate may receive specialized training in a specific academic and/or occupational area, as well as professional skills to advance their careers. Graduate qualifications at UNC Charlotte cover everything from health and science to technology and teaching. On our Programs page, use the Program Type drop-down filter to find graduate degrees.
Many of UNC Charlotte’s graduate certificate programs include a subset of master’s-level courses, allowing students to gain admission and begin a program of study without committing to a master’s degree. Credit hours earned in a certificate program can be applied to a master’s or PhD program, which can be pursued concurrently or after the certificate is awarded. (Please note that credits received in one certificate program cannot be used to fulfill the requirements of another certificate program.)
