Courses for this program are 100% online: no campus visits are required.
Courses in this program are offered asynchronously. Asynchronous courses do not have regular meetings. They may consist of various media and content — such as online discussions, videos, worksheets and recordings — that students review and complete in accordance with regular deadlines throughout the semester.
Successful completion of the program requires 12 credit hours of course work. Required courses for the graduate certificate program relate directly to the program goals — how to administer, lead and fund human services programs.
Courses are offered by multiple public universities in the Great Plains Interactive Distance Education Alliance, and some may have varying start and finish dates. Once you’re a Mizzou student in the program, you will register each semester through Mizzou regardless of the institution offering the course.
The chart below shows when the courses are traditionally offered. Courses are 3 credit hours each, unless stated otherwise. The University reserves the right to change or cancel courses as needed.
Prior to acceptance into the program, you may enroll in up to 3 credit hours as a nondegree-seeking (in some cases, post-baccalaureate) student. Enrollment does not guarantee acceptance. Learn more about nondegree-seeking university student admissions.
