UMass Global offers a wide variety of certificate programs, both for academic credit and professional development (non-credit). Increase or update your knowledge in a certain topic, qualify for a specific job or prepare for certification exams.
Strengthen Your Resume
A professional development (non-credit) certificate program offers a way to continue your education and complete a program in a relatively short period of time.
An undergrad or graduate certificate offers academic credit but can be completed in a term or two. In some cases these help to qualify you for a particular career or help to enhance your knowledge and skills beyond your degree.
Certificates are a great addition to your resume. It shows your desire to continue to learn and provides you with career-relevant skills that can be used on a daily basis, keeping you up-to-date on the latest technology and trends.
- Most professional development certificates, unless they are part of a series, do not have prerequisites but may require a certain skill level.
- Certificates and certification prep courses do not qualify for financial aid. They are an affordable way to increase your skills and possibly your salary.

I was allotted a simplistic way to attempt new strategies and skills into my classroom. Additionally, I was able to easily adapt current materials to be used in conjunction with the new strategies I was studying. I would highly recommend this course.

I took the Autism classes [through Extended Education] and found the passion of special education, which I really never thought of as an option. I finished the Autism program and enrolled in the Master of Special Education. I have learned to reflect on my teaching and determine if I am reaching all students and on how to better reach any struggling students.
