The Graduate Certificate in Social Entrepreneurship and Community Development requires a total of 15 credits. Students must take 9 credits of required core courses and 6 credits of electives. The only courses allowed are the graduate level NLM courses listed below. The Program of Study for the Graduate Certificate in Social Entrepreneurship and Community Development is offered online in 7.5 week modules. No more than six credit hours of graduate courses taken before admission can be included in the Program of Study for the Certificate. See the Graduate College's policy manual for more information on graduate certificates.
Criteria for admission to the graduate certificate program include a completed undergraduate degree with a minimum "B" average and experience in the nonprofit sector. This certificate is available to all ASU graduate students irrespective of their majors. Students not currently enrolled in a degree program at ASU may also be a part of the certificate program.
If you are enrolled or considering a master's degree, you can take these courses while earning your degree. Check with your major advisor today! We have had students from Recreation Management, Public Affairs, Business Administration, and other fields who have taken classes to earn the certificate. This program is available as a fully 'Online' student or as an 'In-Person' student. If you are only taking this program is would be easier for you to apply as an online student. If you are in another in-person program at ASU you want to apply to this certificate as an in-person student.
Applications must be complete by the above dates for the application term or your application will be applied to the next term (fall, spring, summer).
Students also complete 6 credits of related elective coursework from a selection of graduate level NLM courses (see below).
