Pathway to a master's degree

Are you a working professional who wants to earn your master's degree, but you don’t have time to take the GRE? Then start in a graduate certificate program. This graduate certificate was designed as a pathway to a civil engineering MS, engineering management MS or environmental engineering  MS.

The admission requirements are more relaxed and credit earned will count toward your degree. Once you successfully earn your graduate certificate, you can continue with the corresponding master's degree without having to take the GRE. Completion of a graduate certificate program does not automatically guarantee admission into a corresponding graduate degree program. To continue in a master’s degree program, you must apply. If you are applying to a PhD program, you are still required to submit GRE scores.


Missouri University of Science and Technology is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States.
