Certificates

At the School of Education, we are committed to producing education leaders and to providing timely, relevant, and rigorous programs of study based on the latest trends and developments in the field of education.

The School of Education offers a number of programs that result in a Drexel University credential, a certificate that acknowledges the completion of a series of courses leading to a body of knowledge in a specific area.

Most of the certificate programs are an outgrowth of our master’s degrees with all courses bearing graduate credits. A certificate student may consider, therefore, matriculation into the graduate program upon the successful completion of the certificate and all other graduate admissions requirements.
