Certificate programs allow students to focus on a particular topic of interest through a multi-course program of study. AAU offers three types of accredited online certificate programs: introduction, general, and advanced. Each is designed to be self-contained and to have the appropriate course prerequisites.
Certificates at the introduction and general levels are open to applicants who have at least a high school diploma or its equivalent. Advanced certificate programs are available for students who have either an associate or bachelor’s degree and seek specific knowledge in one subject area.
Each program consists of five courses designed for individuals seeking to increase their knowledge and career training in a broad range of high-demand business fields.
For certificates that include an English or writing course, it is required that the English or writing course constitutes the first course or is a part of the first set of courses taken by the student in pursuit of the certificate.
