Tufts University’s Friedman School Online Graduate Certificate Programs are designed to meet the needs of working professionals and others interested in expanding their knowledge, enhancing their skill set, or improving their marketability in order to advance in their career. Students from around the globe learn from the school's renowned faculty, collaborate and network with fellow students, and receive expert instruction on a schedule that is compatible with the needs of busy students.
Online courses at the Friedman School are characterized by small class sizes, engaged faculty members, and rigorous coursework. While the nature of online learning allows students flexibility and convenience with their studies, the courses are not self-paced. Each student is expected to participate in course activities and discussions every week.
All online courses offered within the certificate programs are designed and taught by Tufts faculty, and held to the same academic standards and rigor as those taught live on the Boston campus.
Upon completion of each course, students will earn graduate academic credit. Students who successfully complete three courses within our certificate programs will earn a Certificate of Graduate Studies.
Fall, spring and summer admissions.
