Professional Development Certificates in Education Improvement and Transformation

About the Certificates

Each certificate concentration = 9.0 quarter credits

The certificates are designed to prepare professional educators and others to lead transformative (reform) initiatives in formal and  informal education sectors through a professional development grounded model.

Each concentration addresses key topics pertinent to the improvement of PK-adult education.

In addition to being stand-alone certificates, four of these may be "stacked" within the MS in Education Improvement and Transformation to create a total of 36.0 credits toward graduation of that degree program.
