Degree or Program Details


Special Studies Certificate

This is a one-year program leading to a certificate for those students whose immediate goal is not an associate or baccalaureate degree. If they wish, students can later use this program as a basis for meeting the requirements of a degree program. Students develop a course of study in conjunction with an adviser using a form provided by the Registrar’s Office. The area of concentration emphasizes a specific area of interest or professional development. The student, with the approval of the adviser, chooses courses from either a single discipline or a combination of disciplines. The student uses courses from one or more disciplines as cognates to support the area of concentration. Students must obtain a grade of “C” (2.00) or better in the area of concentration in order to graduate.
