Non-Degree and Certification Only Programs

The College of Education & Human Development provides non-degree opportunities for students who wish to:

  • obtain a certificate at the graduate level,
  • add an area of endorsement to a certificate,
  • obtain initial certification in educational leadership and special education,
  • take courses for enrichment.
A graduate certificate is designed to provide students with specialized knowledge that is less extensive than, and different from, a full graduate degree program. A certificate demonstrates that you have completed a planned, sequential program of study in a particular field of knowledge and that course of study has met the standards of the College of Education & Human Development and Georgia State University. The College of Education & Human Development offers four graduate certificates.
