Program Start: Fall 2024

We welcome applications on a rolling basis until August 1, 2024. The certificate program starts in the fall term. 

Application Components

The application process is easy. Use our online application to apply for admission. Once you have completed and submitted your application, you will be provided access to an online Application Status Portal where you will be able to monitor your application checklist, provide required supplemental documentation, and ultimately receive your admission decision.

Written Personal Statement

The purpose of the written personal statement is to provide insight into your level of motivation, sense of purpose in pursuing a graduate degree, writing skills, and professional communication style. This one to two paragraph statement will be considered as part of the admission committee's review process. For more information, please see the Written Personal Statement tab of your application.

Letters of Recommendation

We require at least one (1) reference in support of your application for admission. Please seek a reference from an individual (non-family member) with whom you have worked in a professional or academic setting, preferably within the last two years.
