Should I pursue a certificate or the degree?

November 4, 2022

This is really up to the individual and depends on what your professional and personal goals are. Do you already have a MS degree? Are you looking to gain knowledge of a new industry or acquire advanced skills in a specific discipline? A graduate certificate may be appropriate for you. A master’s degree is often pursued for similar reasons but it may be a requirement on a resume or needed to transition into a new field. Individuals should consider their own goals and background when weighing their decision. Please reach out to an enrollment advisor to discuss both options.
