Careers

What Can I Do with a Certificate in Public Management?

The Public Management Certificate is targeted toward students who are currently employed, part- or full-time; those who wish to upgrade their professional skills; those contemplating a graduate program who wish to "test the waters" first in a graduate certification program; and those already enrolled in another graduate program who wish to obtain an additional professional credential. Students who successfully complete the Public Management Certificate may apply all credits earned in the program toward a Public Management emphasis in the Master in Administration degree. Successfully completing four Political Science courses earns you the certificate. All courses for the certificate are offered regularly, can be completed entirely via web-based instruction, and may be taken in any order.

You may enroll in certificate courses during any semester, including summer, after first being admitted to NAU through the Graduate College as either a non-degree graduate student (minimum requirement is a bachelor's degree with a GPA of 2.5 or above), or as a student pursuing a graduate degree. There are no prerequisites for admission to the certificate program. This program also offers optional field work experience or independent study credit.
Note: Please remember - the completion of this program does not automatically provide any form of endorsement or certification in AZ or elsewhere.
