Non-matriculating degree students have the option of enrolling in a series of courses leading to a certificate in one of four areas:
- European History
- American History
- World History
- Teaching Advanced Placement History
Students who earn a certificate in one of the above areas may, with the approval of the Director, apply these four courses toward either the M.A. in History or the M.A. in History for Educators. The certificate option will appeal especially—but not exclusively—to those educators already well along in their teaching careers and interested in qualifying for either Act 48 or “highly qualified” status.
