Whether you’re looking to advance within your current career or branch out into a new field, for-credit graduate certificates from USF Health provide post-baccalaureate education and career-building credentials in a fraction of the time it takes to earn a master’s degree. And while you earn these qualifications 100% online, you receive your graduate certificate from the same U.S. News & World Report-ranked university as traditional students. Best of all, the credits you earn can be applied toward a master’s degree, should you choose to pursue one in the future.* For-credit certificates have other advantages, too. As a professional or military servicemember, you may be able to take advantage of tuition assistance to pay for your education.
