Excelsior Announces New Graduate Certificates


Albany, New York—Excelsior College is proud to announce six new graduate certificates. The School of Graduate Studies is offering certificates in Advanced Project Management, Cybersecurity Operations, Homeland Security and Emergency Management, Leadership, Nutrition, and Public Health Equity.


The certificate programs range from three to five courses each and offer focused courses in the discipline so students can immediately implement what they’ve learned in the workplace. Students can complete most of the certificates in as little as 6 months. Courses from the certificates can be applied to a graduate degree program at Excelsior.


“Our working adults are often motivated to pursue education for two key reasons—to advance their career through promotion or to change careers to an emerging growth sector. Certificates offer students short and affordable pathways to credentials that unlock students’ career potential,” said Scott Dolan, dean of the School of Graduate Studies at Excelsior College. “Each of the certificates we have developed provide students with an opportunity to gain key competencies and skills required for the dynamic and evolving job market. These certificates are a chance for students to quickly upskill and reskill to meet the demands of the health, business, cybersecurity, and homeland security fields.”


These certificate programs add to the suite of graduate certificates offered by Excelsior College, including Cannabis Control, Data Analytics, and Distributed Workforce Management. https://www.excelsior.edu/programs/graduate-programs/graduate-certificate-programs/
