Undergraduate certificate programs are designed to offer students the chance to enroll in a group of related classes.
It is important to understand how these programs differ from traditional degree programs.
For example, an undergraduate certificate program may pull courses together from a variety of disciplines in order to form a coherent theme, or the program may offer classes that all focus on a specific academic or technical field. Some students choose to pursue undergraduate certificate programs while concurrently working on a traditional undergraduate degree, while others choose certificate programs instead of lengthier undergraduate degree programs.
