Certificate Program

A traditional liberal arts education is designed to liberate the minds of young men, allowing them to pursue a multi-disciplinary education. Our Certificate Program takes this process a step further by recognizing and rewarding students who identify and practice their passions through a combination of coursework, co-curricular activities, and extracurricular activities. In this program, we ask students to examine academic context through their studies, gain real-world experience through their field work, and act to make a difference through their final projects.

The completion of all certificate programs involves fulfilling academic requirements in a chosen course of study, involvement in a choice of co-curricular experiences, and a final project related to the specific field during the final quarter of senior year. A student choosing to pursue a certificate will begin the process in his sophomore year during course selection.

By following the framework of the certificate, students are making interdisciplinary connections, and pursuing passions to take action, thus connecting their experience to our larger mission.

Certificates are offered in the following areas:
