Capstone Courses:
FASH 666 Special Problem (1 cr. is required. but students may take up to 6 cr.)

The FASH 666 Special Problem serves as a capstone experience whereby students integrate their learning across the courses of the certificate. This course is taken upon completing at least seven credits required for the certificate program. Students work under the direction of one of the teaching instructors on individual study, experiential learning (e.g., group travel, internship, service learning), or research with the teaching professor.

Additional Information

To be successful in the program, prospective students need to be able to express themselves clearly in written English as there are readings, written assignments, and discussions with the instructor and other classmates.

If the certificate program participant only holds an undergraduate degree, it is recommended that he/she take the certificate program courses for a letter grade (A, B, etc.), so that, if at a later date the participant elects to pursue a graduate degree, these graduate courses may be transferable into that degree program. If the certificate program participant already holds a graduate degree and does not intend to use the courses toward any future degree program, then the participant may elect to take the courses Pass/Fail, still earning graduate credits; but those ungraded credits are unlikely to be transferable into a graduate degree program.

Academic Load

Students pursuing the certificate will normally enroll in three to six courses toward the graduate certificate per academic semester. Students not maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA in the graduate certificate courses or who do not enroll in at least one required course for two consecutive academic semesters (Fall and Spring) will be asked to withdraw from the program.

Grade Minimums

To earn the graduate certificate, students must receive a grade of Pass/B- or better in each course.
