The Graduate Certificate in Policy Analysis is open to anyone with an undergraduate degree in any area of study. It is designed for working professionals who are unable to attend a full-time, on-campus program. You are not required to come to campus at any time.
The Policy Analysis Graduate Certificate provides the analytic skills needed by professionals from diverse backgrounds who are required to conduct or understand policy analysis and program planning in the public or not-for-profit sectors.
Even non-profit or public program managers who do not conduct research themselves must understand the information provided in research reports in order to make informed decisions.
The Graduate Certificate program will allow you to update or upgrade your skills without committing to a master's degree program. All courses in the Graduate Certificate program may be applied to a fully-online Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree should you be admitted to the MPA program at a later date.
