Certificate & Licensure Programs

Learning never stops. And knowledge is only useful if you know how to apply it. That’s why we offer post-baccalaureate licensure and certificate programs that are individualized and focused on your career and personal goals.

  • Applied Computing in partnership with Google: This two-course program is available to students in all majors. No prior programming experience is required!

    Pass both classes, as well as an introductory statistics course, and you’re eligible to apply to a free 10-week seminar in Machine Learning, held at several locations around the country and taught by Google engineers alongside college faculty.

  • Licensure to Master's Program: For women and men who already have their bachelor's degree and seek teaching licensure, Alverno offers a graduate-level teacher-education program through which one may earn licensure in general or special education in as few as 18 months and complete a master's degree with nine additional credits.

  • Post-baccalaureate Teacher Education Program: This program is designed for college graduates seeking teaching licensure and for teachers who want to upgrade their skills, renew their licensure or extend it to new areas, using undergraduate coursework.
