Did you know that you have the option to earn a university
certificate while earning your degree at NAU?
Okay, but what is a university certificate?
In short, university certificates are college education
programs that focus on one specific subject area. Some university certificates
are designed to earn alongside your degree, while others are stand-alone certifications.
University certificate programs range from professional
writing and educational technology to speech-language pathology and emergency
Can earning a university certificate really impact your success?
Here are some of the ways how earning a university certificate can open doors
in your career.
Show Your Competency
When a hiring manager sees that you earned a university
certificate, he or she knows that you’ve mastered coursework relevant to the
job. By pairing a university certificate with a bachelor’s or master’s degree,
your resume will show that you have the theoretical education and practical
skills to get the job done right—not to mention catch the attention of companies
actively seeking these credentials in their candidates.
Tailor Your Education
To Your Career Goals
Specialized training can bring great value to your profession
and the people you serve. University certificates concentrate on specific
skills and management styles not taught in the coursework of your degree while
adding value to the degree you are earning.
Commit To What You
If going back to school to earn your degree is too big of a
commitment right now, earn a university certificate in the meanwhile. University
certificates are designed to be stepping-stones to bachelor and master degree
programs by preparing you with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in
a university degree program. Plus, your grad school application will shine by
earning a university certificate.
