Students will select one course from each of four categories: Program Administration, Working with Families, Diversity across the Lifespan, and Curriculum. All students will take the required course in Staff Development. All courses in this program emphasize developmentally and culturally responsive, inclusive, and evidence-based practices in work with young children, youth, and families and the professionals who serve them.

Applicants to this Graduate Certificate Program must have successfully completed a BS or BA in a field related to the applicant’s area of interest. In addition, applicants must provide a statement of interest, career objectives and prior related experience.
