Policy-Related Graduate Certificates at UNH

UNH offers existing graduate certificates for students wishing to gain further subject matter expertise or skill development, and the Carsey School has a number of additional certificates under development that will soon be offered. Graduate certificates offer an opportunity to expand subject matter expertise and skills while gaining an additional credential. Carsey faculty and staff can help students select appropriate pairings between the MPP or MACDPP degree and certificate programs.  In general: 

  •  Four to five courses are required
  • For those pursuing graduate certificates in conjunction with the MPP or MACDPP, a maximum of two courses may be applied both to the degree and the certificate course requirements while gaining both credentials.

A list of the current certificates and some of those under development can be found here.
