Graduate Certificate in Child Advocacy and Policy (online and on campus)
The Graduate Certificate in Child Advocacy and Policy provides students an interdisciplinary understanding of the role of a child advocate as seen through the disciplines of social work, psychology, and law. This unique perspective equips graduates with advanced knowledge of child advocacy and child protection, with a particular focus on policy and practice issues relevant to vulnerable children and families.
The Certificate consists of 5 graduate courses (15 credit hours) and can be completed in one year.
Following completion of the Graduate Certificate, students are encouraged to apply to the Master of Arts in Child Advocacy and Policy. Students who maintain a 3.0 GPA may apply those courses to the MA in Child Advocacy and Policy. Students will then need to complete 7 courses to earn the MA.
