Graduate Certificate Programs

The University also offers two graduate-level certificate programs. Many students complete one of the four-course certificate programs before seeking admission to the master's degree program, and the certificate courses with a grade of "B" or better are then accepted as credits towards the master's degree.

In addition to the Master's Degree program, UMass Lowell offers three 4-course graduate-level certificate programs:

These certificate programs are designed to help professionals acquire advanced knowledge and skills while pursuing studies beyond their Bachelor's Degree. They allow individuals to explore graduate education without committing to the full master's degree program. The courses completed in the certificate program with a grade of "B" or better can also be applied towards the Master's Degree in Health Informatics and Management, if the certificate candidate decides to continue on with his/her studies. Students who complete one of the certificate programs with a GPA of 3.5 or better are not required to complete the GRE for admission into the master's degree program.
