Advanced Graduate Certificates

Advanced Graduate Certificate in Computational Science

The Advanced Graduate Certificate in Computational Science has been designed to provide science and engineering graduate students with credentials certifying they have obtained educational training targeted to the specific area of computational science.

All requirements for the Advanced Graduate Certificate in Computational Science may be found in the Graduate Student Handbook.

Advanced Graduate Certificate in Professional Science Management (PSM)

The term "Professional Science" refers to the post-graduate opportunities for students who wish to pursue non-academic science careers in business, government, or non-governmental organizations. The Advanced Graduate Certificate in Professional Science Management has been designed for students to acquire those skills most desired by industry employers: both scientific and mathematical knowledge and business fundamentals. 

The PSM Certificate program is centered in the activities of the College of Arts and Sciences, which assures considerable breadth and opportunity for interdisciplinary study between the departments of Physics, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Geography, Geology, and Mathematics. As such, the program is open to candidates for the Master's degree in Physics, Chemistry, Geography, Geology, Mathematics, and Natural Science Interdisciplinary, or to those already holding a baccalaureate degree in a participating science department.

The Department of Physics offers a Biophysics Track in PSM. Master's students will receive two credentials upon graduation: the MS degree in Physics and a PSM certificate.
