The Graduate Certificate in Qualitative Research is a 18 credit hour program (6 courses) that is offered in an online learning format. Enrollees may register full- or part-time, taking three to six credit hours per term. Students decide to just take one course they need to further their development. Participants can expect to complete the Graduate Certificate program in 12-24 months depending on their pace of study. Courses are offered in the Fall, Winter and Summer semesters. Attendees may enroll for the entire certificate or take just the courses they need. Students can also opt to take courses in a not-for-credit option at a reduced price and can earn a certificate of completion if they take all six courses.
