The Tseng College offers two types of certificate programs: university certificate and certificate in advanced professional development.

University Certificates (Post-Baccalaureate and Graduate Credit Certificates)

The Tseng College currently offers four certificate programs that earn academic credits at the graduate level. Additional programs are in development.


Graduate Certificate in Business Administration

Three of these certificates are offered in connection with a CSUN master's degree program designed for professionals working in the public or nonprofit sector. Given today's economic uncertainties, many of these professionals are reluctant to commit to pursuing graduate degrees because of cost and time demands.

The Tseng College addresses such concerns by offering "stackable" certificate programs that satisfy academic requirements for CSUN graduate degrees.

University certificate programs offered through the Tseng College typically consist of five or six courses, feature curricula developed by university faculty members, are offered in the cohort format, and take only one year to complete.

Certificates of Advanced Professional Development

The Tseng College also offers advanced professional development certificate programs, all of which earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

Established by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training, CEUs are internationally recognized measures of accomplishment for post-secondary study. Because 10 hours of instruction earn one CEU, a 100-hour certificate program awards 10 CEUs.

Please note: As a non-credit offering, although potentially eligible for tuition reimbursement through your employer, Certificates of Advanced Professional Development are not financial aid-eligible.
