Undergraduate Certifications

Graduating from an Undergraduate Certificate Program at Blue Sky University confirms you have acquired a level of competence or set of skills in a particular area or field of study. It is distinct from a defined undergraduate degree program, stream, specialization or informal concentration. A certificate recognizes a specific grouping of courses that:

1. are cross-disciplinary but with a thematic coherence,

2. form a coherent yet distinctive complement to the major of a degree program, or

3. lead to the acquisition of specific skills or professional expertise that may meet requirements of outside accrediting bodies.

Students who would like to pursue shorter undergraduate courses of study than diploma, associate or bachelor degree programs may be interested in undergraduate certificate programs.

Undergraduate Certificate – The Basics

Undergraduate certificate programs are designed to offer students the chance to enroll in a group of related classes. It is important to note how these programs are different from traditional degree programs. For instance, an undergraduate certificate program may pull courses together from a variety of disciplines in order to form a coherent theme; or an undergraduate certificate program may offer classes that all focus on a specific academic or technical field. Many 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. Having undergraduate certificates in a particular field may benefit students when searching for employment.

Undergraduate certificate programs at Blue Sky University encourage students to create their own curriculum by choosing courses from many disciplines that will serve a common goal. For example, students who major in neuroscience may choose to complete a related undergraduate certificate to show that they have studied a wide range of subjects relating to their field. This interdisciplinary aspect is often at the center of undergraduate certificate programs. Undergraduate certificate programs are also useful to students who wish to become proficient in a technical field without committing to a full-length degree program.

Each undergraduate certificate program begins with the preparation of a detailed self study by each student. The self study provides a detailed picture of the program’s structure, educational processes and evaluation/improvement mechanisms. Whether your motivation for advancing your education is personal, professional or a combination of both, Blue Sky University is ready to support you.
