Certificate Programs

At Marygrove College, we understand that the job market is constantly changing and that professionals continually seek help to keep a professional edge. One way to maintain that edge is to become certified in an area of expertise. Certifications are documents vouching for the fact that you have met a standard in educational degree, continuing education, experience, and testing. Certifications vary by type and industry. Many professions (such as accounting and teaching) require ongoing certification while many technical or vocational fields require certifications based on a set of core courses.

Marygrove offers 13 areas of certification to help you gain the professional knowledge and experience you need to help you determine your own professional destiny. Why not find out more about one of the certifications that interests you?
