Graduate Certificate in the Health Sciences
The Graduate Certificate in the Health Sciences (any concentration) is designed to serve two purposes. First, the graduate certificate is designed to help graduates with a bachelor’s degree learn additional graduate-level material without committing to a graduate degree program at the present time. The Health Sciences faculty recognizes that personal and workplace reasons may prevent a potential student in this situation from pursuing a master’s degree but a desire to “keep-learning” still exists and is commendable.
Second, the graduate certificate is, also, designed for professionals who already process a graduate or professional degree and desire to continue their professional develop in a structured way and culminating in an academic qualification. The Health Sciences faculty recognizes that professionals in this category both desire life-long learning opportunities and professional development options; this, too, is commendable. Regardless of which purpose an individual pursues it, the graduate certificate is designed to be “transferred into” a Charisma University graduate degree program within 5 years of completing the certificate.
