lightbulb icon If pursuing the MS in Organizational Performance and Workplace Learning is an option you are considering after completing a certificate OR if you are considering pursuing a certificate while earning the MS it is the recommendation of the department that you apply to both programs at the time of admission. There is no additional cost for the MS/Graduate Certificate application and it does not obligate you to complete either. Instead, the credits earned in the certificate will automatically apply to the MS and visa versa. You can begin your graduate certificate studies first and upon completion of the certificate you will be halfway through the MS!
