Four graduate certificate programs are offered in public administration. These programs provide students with a post-baccalaureate knowledge of an area of specialization with public administration. Students in these programs register as certificate students. Certificate programs require a set of four courses. Students who are admitted to a master’s degree program may apply coursework previously taken in a certificate program toward the requirements for the master’s degree.

This certificate is designed for professionals who want to increase their knowledge and skills in security, safety, and risk management but do not currently have the time to pursue a Master of Public Administration degree.
