Graduate Certificate in Social Science

The Graduate Certificate program in Social Science provides licensed secondary social science teachers the credentials required by the Higher Learning Commission to teach concurrent college History or Political Science courses. The program also provides professionals and post-graduates an opportunity to take individual courses to enhance their education in History and Political Science or to serve as a bridge to other graduate programs in the social sciences.

Completion of the Graduate Certificate in Social Science requires 18 semester hours of study with an option to complete a Master of Arts in Education at Colorado Mesa University. The same graduate admission process applies to both the Master of Arts program and the Graduate Certificate program.

This program is inactive and is not currently accepting new students. Classes within the Graduate Certificate in Social Science will no longer be taught after Summer 2023.
