Post-Baccalaureate Certificates

Post-baccalaureate certificate programs at the Bloustein School are designed for students who already hold an undergraduate degree, such as a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science. The certificates enable students to develop cross-disciplinary expertise in a particular subject area. Certificate programs are shorter than graduate degree programs and can usually be completed in less than one year on a full-time schedule.

Students who successfully complete the 12-credit curriculum in a specific program area are eligible to apply for the Bloustein School’s corresponding master’s degree program and, if admitted, use their credits as part of their degree requirements.

The 12-credit Certificate in Public Policy allows non-matriculated students, who have completed an undergraduate degree from a nationally/internationally accredited program, to enhance their knowledge and skills in the applied and interdisciplinary field of public policy. It is designed for students who are interested in applied, policy-related work. Upon successful completion of the 12-credit curriculum, students may wish to apply to the Bloustein School’s Master of Public Policy (48-credit program) or to the Executive Master of Public Affairs and Politics (30-credit program).
