Graduate Certificate Programs

Many SEAS students take advantage of the University of Michigan's other high-quality academic programs and interdisciplinary resources to pursue a graduate certificate. Graduate certificate programs allow students to design courses of study that integrate multiple fields of interest. These programs provide the opportunity to hone a specialized skill set to complement the regular master’s degree program of study. SEAS offers four graduate certificates.

All certificate programs can be pursued by current University of Michigan graduate students in conjunction with a degree-seeking program, or anyone who has earned a University of Michigan post-baccalaureate degree within the previous five years. Credit-hour requirements can be reduced when enrolled concurrently in a Rackham graduate degree program by one-sixth of the number of required hours for the degree program. For example, students may integrate the 15-credit-hour program in Industrial Ecology certificate with a 42-credit-hour MS program (totaling 57 credit hours) into a 51-credit-hour program, with six credits double-counted.

Graduate Certificate Program in Environmental Justice 

Environmental Justice (Numeric code 01987/ Program level = certificate)

You must be enrolled in a Master's or PhD degree program at the University of Michigan to be eligible to apply.

This is a 15-credit program. The 15 required credits are above and beyond your other program requirements. Rackham does allow some double-counting between two degrees.  You can double count up to 1/6 of the total of two programs but no more than half of the certificate credit requirements. Download program requirements and courses here.

Environmental justice refers to cultural norms and values, rules, regulations, behaviors, and policies that determine whether people will have confidence that their environment is safe, nurturing, and productive. Environmental justice is most successful when there are no environmental barriers to one's personal or collective potential; it is supported by decent paying and safe jobs, quality schools and recreation, decent housing and adequate health care, democratic decision-making, personal empowerment, and communities free of the violence that often emerges from poverty. Environmental justice communities are characterized by respect for cultural and biological diversity and a commitment to distributive justice.

The Environmental Justice Certificate program aims to provide fundamental skills and knowledge, methods and applications of environmental justice to enhance the education of students from a wide range of relevant disciplines at the University of Michigan. Students will:

  • Examine the historical, scientific, social, legal, cultural, and political complexities of the relationship between people and the built and natural environment
  • Examine past research on the environment and design new research to study and enhance our knowledge of how race, class, and gender affect our environmental experiences, attitudes and perceptions, and influence how we construct environmental discourses
  • Master research methods and approaches to rigorously study perspectives about and impediments to safe, sustainable communities for all people
  • Participate in efforts to educate policymakers, educators, lawmakers, health professionals, industry leaders, and the public about environmental inequalities
  • Participate in educational and strategic planning efforts to help communities take effective action to ameliorate harmful environmental conditions

Graduates of this program use their skills in such professional settings as Sierra Club, Surdna Andrus, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and more

Certificate Programs

A graduate certificate is a non-degree credential, less extensive than a Master’s program, which is designed to provide students with a specialized set of courses that supplement a primary field of study, area of expertise, or provide an interdisciplinary experience within a defined body of knowledge. Certificates are encouraged in areas not currently addressed by a graduate degree program and where they might provide added benefits to students beyond existing degree programs.  More information, please visit the Graduate Certificate Policy webpage.

College Education, Health, and Human Services

For current students, fill out a Declaration of Certificate Form.

For new students not enrolled in a UM-Dearborn degree program, please fill out the appropriate Certificate Program Application (accessed via the non-degree application online).

7. Certificates of Graduate Studies Programs

A Rackham certificate of graduate studies is a non-degree credential for study and participation in a scholarly community around a focused topic of special academic interest. A certificate requires a specified set of courses and activities that supplement and enrich a student’s primary program of study.

A student in a Rackham or non-Rackham degree program may apply to the graduate school for a certificate program after having completed at least one term. Some certificate programs, however, are open to admission of persons who are not university graduate students but who have earned a bachelor’s degree or higher. Such applicants apply directly to the certificate program through Rackham Admissions.

Certificates require a minimum of 9 credits of coursework plus an additional requirement equivalent to 3 credits, for a total of 12 credits. The additional 3 credit equivalent requirement is defined and approved by the certificate faculty. This may take the form of an internship, practicum, research project, professional development activity, or similar experience. Alternatively, the certificate may require additional coursework of at least three credits of coursework. Certificates may require no more than 19 credits.

The following general rules apply:

  • Only graduate level courses eligible for Rackham credit may be used to meet certificate requirements; no transfer credit may be applied. All credits must be completed on the home campus on which the degree program is administered.
  • The student must have a minimum cumulative GPA of B (3.0 on a 4.0 point scale) in courses counted for the certificate program.
  • Not more than one-sixth of the credits required for a master’s degree may be double-counted with a certificate.
  • If a certificate requires 9 credits of coursework, only 3 credits may be double-counted. Double-counted credits may not be used for a third master’s or certificate program.
  • A non-Rackham student who has been admitted to a free-standing certificate program must complete all requirements within four years from the date of first enrollment in the program.

Information is available from the programs about specific certificate requirements.
