Advance your Career with a Certificate Program
Most professionals require formal training to develop industry-standard skills and knowledge and to secure the best job opportunities. Online undergraduate certificate programs from the University of Maine System universities provide a convenient option for people wishing to supplement existing skills or to prepare for a new career.
Certificate programs offer focused academic training in specific areas and can be completed more quickly than associate’s degrees. Earning a certificate can demonstrate to an employer that a person is dedicated to the job and wants to improve his or her skills through additional training.
The University System universities offer undergraduate certificates in Accounting, Child and Youth Care, Criminal Justice, Gerontology, Human Resources Management, Information and Library Services, Paralegal Studies, Substance Abuse Rehabilitation, and many more. Students receive academic credit that may be applied toward a degree program later.
For people just getting started in online courses, University College Centers offers instruction in all aspects of online learning, and students are welcome to use the computer lab if they don’t have a high-speed internet connection at home.
Registration for the Spring 2013 semester, which begins in January, is open and ongoing. For more information about programs and courses from Maine’s public universities, please contact University College at 1-800-868-7000 or visit the Spring course listing.
