The Graduate Certificate in Research Administration is an 18-credit online certificate that provides an overview of the core concepts in research administration for those interested in management within research organizations. The Certificate is intended to meet the needs of individuals seeking a focused experience in order to prepare for or advance their careers in research management and leadership. It is appropriate for students who seek to expand their knowledge, but who do not wish to commit to a master’s degree program.
Credit earned in the certificate program may be applied toward the Master of Research Administration (M.R.A.) degree. However, admission to the M.R.A. degree program has separate requirements from those of the certificate program and students considering continuing into the master’s degree should consult with a faculty adviser early in their certificate program. The Graduate Certificate in Research Administration requires that students complete 18 credit hours of courses. Students must maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average in order to be awarded the Graduate Certificate. The Certificate must be completed within three years.
