Graduate Certificates

Graduate certificate programs provide a means for UT to respond to emerging needs. Graduate certificate programs provide focused areas of studies for students 1) pursuing other academic programs at the master or doctoral levels, 2) who have already earned a master or doctorate, or 3) who are post-baccalaureate and enrolled solely in graduate certificate programs.

Graduate certificate programs are for-credit programs, based entirely on credit courses, and appear on the academic transcript. Graduate certificate programs are required to have student learning outcomes and an assessment plan reported annually through the university’s adopted process.

The Department of Theory and Practice in Teacher Education offers two graduate certificates, Cultural Studies Education and Urban Education.
