Our certificate programs provide students with advanced study and continuing education in four specific areas within the department. Many of our certificate students go on to apply and complete the MA in English. Other students have already completed a graduate degree, but they need to complete additional graduate work in a specific area.
For those students that would like to pursue 18 semester hours of English graduate courses, we recommend that students apply to a certificate program and complete additional coursework.
We offer four Graduate Certificates including:
Certificate in Professional Communication, requiring 15 semester hours.
Certificate in Multicultural and Transnational Literatures, requiring 12 semester hours.
Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), requiring 9 semester hours.
Certificate in Teaching English in the Two-Year College (TETYC), requiring 12 semester hours.
