Certificate Programs

A certificate program results in a certificate of completion rather than a degree. We are proud to offer certificates for undergraduates and gradutes.


Creative Writing

Our creative writing certificate program gives students a way to explore their creativity and get a hands-on understanding of how to shape their ideas into art. It is open to students working on their bachelor’s degree or anyone in the community looking to work on their poetry.

Students must complete specific course work in the Department of Verbal and Visual Arts in order to receive the certificate.

Early Childhood & Family Studies

This certificate is offered through our College of Education.


Graduate certificates comprise linked courses in focused areas of study that provide students with a specialized emphasis to enhance their career options, focus their degree program, or to advance lifelong learning.

USFSP currently offers certificates in Educational Leadership Development, Infant-Family Mental Health, Leadership Management, and Middle Grades Digitally-Enhanced Mathematics Education.
