MLAS students can participate in the Certificate program, a series of courses clustered around specific disciplines or topics.  Upon completion of five course within a specific area of study, the student is eligible to receive a Certificate in that area, and is also eligible to participate in five additional MLAS courses in other disciplines in order to earn the MLAS degree, if they so choose.

Each course within the certificate program is similar in structure and approach to those offered in the MLAS degree program.  Courses in each certificate program will be indicated in the course description. Priority for enrollment in a certificate-related class will be given to those students who have already taken courses toward that certificate.  A certificate in a specified field of study will be presented to a student after successfully completing five courses.  Application and admission to the program and the tuition for each course within the certificate program is commensurate with those already in place for the MLAS degree program.
