Method: Online | Credit Hours: 15 | Credential: Graduate Certificate
The 15-hour program includes coursework in College Student Personnel, specifically advising, that prepares individuals who are entering the field of collegiate advising in order to expand their knowledge. Gearon (2016) states, “certificates can be good options for adults who want to continue their education without devoting the time and money it takes to complete a master’s degree.”
This program will also provide a benefit to experienced advisors who wish to enhance their knowledge or will give those with an interest in serving in an advising role the skills and competencies they need to be effective. The program will introduce students to advising in broad terms and will give them exposure to the main types of advising that is common in higher education institutions.
