Common to each is the foundation course ethics and leadership. A certificate can be completed in lieu of, alongside of, or after finishing the MAOL degree. On-campus certificates require 15 to 18 credits.

Students in another graduate degree program at St. Catherine and individuals who have already earned a baccalaureate or graduate degree may pursue a certificate. Admission requirements for the MAOL certificate are the same as those for the degree. A certificate student in good academic standing may convert to degree status by updating an abbreviated application form.

Any coursework taken for a certificate can be applied toward an MAOL degree within the seven-year completion policy of the program, unless otherwise stipulated. MAOL graduates may complete an additional certificate by adding coursework to their program. Alumnae/i of the program may apply coursework taken more than seven years prior with the permission of the MAOL Program Director.
