Online Graduate Certificate in Community Economic Development
Note: Admission for the Graduate Certificate in Community Economic Development program is suspended.
The Online Graduate Certificate in Community Economic Development is designed to give experienced and aspiring leaders the critical knowledge of community development, economic development, policy, and advocacy needed to bring lasting solutions to local communities. Whether as an add-on to our popular Master of Arts in International Community Development program, as an on-ramp to our Master of Arts in Community Economic Development (classes will count toward this degree), or as an additional credential for experienced practitioners who have a bachelor’s degree, the Graduate Certificate in Community Economic Development provides a solid introduction to and foundation in the discipline and ethos of community economic development.
Our CED classes emphasize U.S. contexts, but students from all cultural contexts and backgrounds are welcome.
