Certificates of Graduate Study are designed for professional who are considering a career shift or want to increase their knowledge in a particular field, as well as for students who want to supplement the master's degree. The Muskie School offers a wide range of certificates, from applied research and evaluation methods to public health to social policy analysis.

At the Muskie School of Public Service, we create cost-effective, online continuing professional development programs for people working in the health and social service professions. Our learning formats are synchronous, asynchronous and blended. We work closely with our partners to customize each curriculum to the needs and environments of their learners.
