An online graduate certificate is a great alternative to a full degree program for those who don’t have time to commit to a full degree, are seeking specialized knowledge and training within their field, or are thinking about switching career focus. These certificates can be completed in as little as one to three terms, and some can be applied toward future graduate degrees.
Drexel University currently offers the following online doctoral degrees: an EdD in Educational Leadership and Management, a Doctor of Health Science (DHSc), and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). While some programs have in-person requirements, most of the coursework is completed online. You’ll be able to interact with your classmates, professors, and thesis advisers remotely, and will receive the same attention and support as you would on-campus.
The time it will take to complete your degree varies depending on your program, how many credits you transfer in, your course load, and whether you're going to school full- or part-time. Some certificates can be finished in as little as one to three terms, while other degrees can be completed in just two years. To estimate how long completing your degree will take, look at the curriculum page for your specific program to see how many credits your degree will require. From there, you can get a rough idea of how long your degree will take based on how many courses you plan to take per term.
