For Credit Certificate Programs

For-credit certificates are ideal for adults who have already earned an undergraduate degree*, and want to increase their knowledge in a specific area, such as accountancy or business administration.

Villanova University offers a variety of certificate programs. We manage some of these certificates directly through the College of Professional Studies (CPS)—Part Time Studies, while others, are offered through individual schools.

Certificates offered through CPS include:

*The Information Systems Certificate does not require an undergraduate degree.

In addition to the above certificate programs, you may want to explore some of the following options:

  • Non-credit professional development certificates offered through the College of Professional Studies:  certificates in Project Management, Drug & Alcohol Counseling, Human Resources, Paralegal, Fundraising and Strategic Leadership Development
  • Graduate certificates offered through Villanova's Department of Graduate Studies in Arts & Sciences
  • A Post MBA Certificate offered through the School of Business
  • The Summer Business Institute for non-business undergraduates
