WKU Online Certificates

Online Certificate Banner

Online certificates may be earned as part of a degree program or as a stand-alone credential. Many students find it advantageous to couple a certificate with an associate, bachelor’s degree or master’s degree. Most often, programs can be planned to include a certificate as part of the curriculum, allowing students to earn two credentials at the same time.

Undergraduate certificates are normally earned as part of a bachelor’s or associate degree, and provide an excellent opportunity to specialize in a specific area.
Online graduate certificates provide opportunities for students to add complementary specialization to a master’s degree, earn graduate hours in a new teaching discipline, or try graduate school without committing to a full degree program.



Information about accreditation can be found through the Office of the Provost.
