Program Description:

This program enhances an already existing Master's degree in family financial planning by specifically addressing the needs of the Military Advancement Academic Program (MAAP), a program of the Great Plains Interactive Distance Alliance (GP-IDEA) that focuses on career needs of military personnel and spouses.

The certificate provides the initial educational background that can potentially lead to 2 possible designations:
