Certificate programs are designed around the needs of current career professionals. The programs include a set of related courses leading to a certificate that demonstrates the successful completion of the curriculum. We currently offer several undergraduate-level professional studies (PSU) and graduate-level professional studies (PSG) certificates.

Professional studies courses offer students a substantial reduction in tuition costs and are designed to satisfy requirements for professional development. Undergraduate-level PSU are cross-listed with under-graduate courses/programs and graduate-level PSG certificates are cross-listed with graduate courses/programs at Gallaudet and follow the same rigorous level of education.

We offer various styles of learning from on-campus courses to online courses. Learn more here.

Tuitions costs for all certificate programs are $331 per credit.
