Graduate Certificate Program

Curricula for graduate certificates include the same courses taken by other USC graduate students, but lead to a targeted graduate credential subordinate to an MS degree.  All choices give students the education they need within a short period of time. Full-time students can complete certificates in two semesters; part-time students in four semesters or less. This page details certificates available via the Viterbi Distance Education Network (DEN).  Students who complete these credentials may apply the certificate courses toward associated Master of Science degrees.
