Marquette University’s College of Professional Studies will make its Graduate Certificate in Leadership Studies program fully available online. Students may enroll now for the fall 2009 semester. The college will continue to offer its on-campus/online hybrid certificate option.
“The certificate is designed for working professionals who want to better prepare themselves for leadership positions in government, corporations or nonprofit organizations,” said Dr. Jay Caulfield, associate dean for the college. “Earning the certificate enhances leadership development within a values-based curriculum.”
Certificate students will be required to complete five leadership courses (15 graduate credits) over a period of 18 months. There will be one course during the fall 2009 semester, and then two courses during each of the following two semesters.
Applicants are required to have a four-year undergraduate degree from an accredited institution. They must complete an application form, submit transcripts from all previous and current universities, and provide three letters of recommendation.
Those interested in the online Certificate in Leadership Studies program should contact Lori Kazaks, recruitment coordinator in the College of Professional Studies, at (414) 288-7118. Additional information and application materials are also available online.
