The advanced master's degree is available for teachers who hold Georgia T-4 certification in the related certification field and wish to do advanced work in their teaching field.

Master of Arts in Professional Communication and Leadership

The Master of Arts in Professional Communication and Leadership prepares students for workplace communication, critical thinking and organizational leadership. It is directed toward both working professionals and mature college graduates who are either already in the work force or who are making the transition from an undergraduate degree to a professional setting, and who aim to sharpen their communication abilities. At the core of the program are four courses that focus on writing and leadership.

The Graduate Certificate in Professional Communication and Leadership is a complementary program to the master’s for individuals who need or desire more training in workplace communication and leadership but not a master's degree, or for those who are interested in graduate training in communication and leadership but are not yet certain if they want a master's degree.

Undergraduate Certificate in Criminal Justice

The Department of Criminal Justice, Social and Political Science has established a new undergraduate certificate in criminal justice that can be completed in one year of full-time study, available entirely on-line.

Coupled with relevant work experience, academic study in criminal justice sharpens a graduate’s competitive edge for state and federal law enforcement openings, court administration positions and state and federal probation and parole positions. Career opportunities in criminal justice also include police officers, private security professionals, corrections officers, intake and classification specialists and juvenile justice agency personnel.
