Graduate Students Discussing Teaching

Certificate in University Teaching

This Certificate program helps to prepare graduate students for teaching at the college or university level. It draws on university-wide resources to provide experiences in pedagogy and diversity issues, as well as mentored teaching and a capstone portfolio. Together, the program components develop students’ ability to design and teach their own courses while implementing effective instructional techniques, including assessment, to meet the needs of all learners. The Certificate helps students to stand out in the academic job market and demonstrate their commitment to professional growth and excellence in teaching.
