Online Professional Graduate Certificates

Auburn University online graduate certificate programs can allow further specialization or contribute towards the advancement of one’s career. Rather than enrolling in a second degree program, professionals may opt to pursue a graduate certificate or decide to eventually apply the course credit to a graduate degree.

Earning a graduate certificate often takes less time and is more affordable than traditional graduate programs.  And because classes are online, students can complete courses at a time that is convenient for them, allowing time in their busy schedules for work, family and other priorities that are important to non-traditional students and working professionals.

We currently offer a graduate certificate program in Restoration Ecology, and anticipate the addition of several others, including One-Health and Forest Finance and Investment in 2018.
