To fulfill the requirements of this Graduate Certificate, students must complete a total of nine credit hours which is equivalent to three courses. All students are required to take EAD 861: Adult Learning, leaving them the option of selecting two courses from the remaining six available. All courses in the Certificate curriculum, with the exception of EAD 871, are administered through MSU’s on-line course management system.

 *Although the EAD 861 class is “required” students may request a waiver to substitute one of the other listed courses in its place. To request such a waiver, you must select any one of the three intended courses to serve formally as the “substitute” course.

Students are typically allowed to share up to 9 credits between graduate programs. Transfer credits must gain approval through the College and the student’s academic advisor. Only courses in which at least a 3.0 grade or its equivalent was received will be considered for transfer.

Please note, the Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning program does not meet any licensure or professional certification requirements.
