Our four-course Certificate of Graduate Studies (CGS) programs are designed for students looking for continued professional development without the formal pursuit of a master’s degree. Our certificate programs in administration of justice – cybersecurity and intelligence, digital forensics and leadership in justice – offer students the opportunity to broaden their professional careers with topics that are crucial in today’s environment.
As the need for cybersecurity specialists continues to escalate, our cybersecurity and intelligence certificate trains managers to lead in this rapidly-changing environment and bridge the communication gap between management and technicians.
Our digital forensics certificate introduces students to the fundamental principles and techniques of computer network architecture, proper evidence storage collection, and federal rules and criminal codes. Graduates understand how foreign, state-sponsored threat actors target certain institutions and companies and how to thwart those threats.
Focusing on strategic management in a multicultural, technological and collaborative environment, our leadership in justice certificate combines a core administration of justice focus with electives in the management and holistic leadership fields.
Certificates may be completed entirely online, although courses are also offered at our Newport campus and in a hybrid classroom/online format.
