Certificates & Specialized Studies

 Online Courses Available  Qualified for VA Education Benefits  WIOA Approved Programs

Overview

Today’s employers recognize the value of ongoing professional career development. UCI Division of Continuing Education's certificate and specialized studies programs – focused programs that balance theory and practice with an emphasis on real-world experience – are well-received by employers and can be a significant factor in hiring and promotion.

Certificate programs offer an in-depth body of knowledge to ensure you gain mastery of a particular topic. Specialized Studies feature shorter, more concentrated curricula for those short on time. Both are distinctive achievements that can help prepare you for career entry, advancement, or even transition.

UCI DCE offers programs in the most sought-after professional fields. Browse by area of study above or view a list of all programs.
