NJIT's graduate certificates give students the opportunity to:

(a) improve their skills in their current occupation by developing expertise in advanced topics,
(b) acquire knowledge to pursue new careers, or
(c) explore emerging fields before committing to relevant master’s degree programs that require more courses.  

Many students pursue a graduate certificate for personal growth or part-time.

Each certificate program contains 4 graduate courses (equivalent to a total of 12 graduate credits) that are normally part of the curriculum for a 30-credit Master's degree program. After successful completion of a graduate certificate, a student may decide to continue studying at NJIT towards the corresponding Master's degree by taking advantage of rapid matriculated acceptance and eventual acquisition of two credentials (essentially for the price of the Master’s degree).

Graduate Certificates are available in:
