Credit-Bearing Certificate Programs

At Temple University, a certificate is a credit-bearing program of courses leading to a credential that recognizes the student’s work in a specialized area of knowledge. An undergraduate certificate may be part of a degree program, or it may stand alone. It is distinct from an academic major or minor and should not be confused with the process of professional certification for teaching and other fields. Certificate programs often focus on the acquisition of specific skills recognized in the job market. They are open to undergraduates in all Temple schools and colleges and majors and are particularly useful to students seeking to document their exposure to fields and disciplines outside of their academic major and minor. Some majors recommend particular certificate programs to their students. Non-degree students should contact the school or college offering a certificate, as some certificates are restricted to degree students. Below is a list of undergraduate certificate programs. For detailed information, contact the school or college.
