Nonprofit and Public Leadership - Certificate
The Organizational Leadership program offers certificates for those who wish to complete a specified cluster of courses within the Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership (MAOL) curriculum. Certificates derived from MAOL’s concentrations include:
- Ethics and Leadership
- Healthcare Leadership
- Information Services and Technology
- Library Leadership
- Nonprofit and Public Leadership
- Spirituality and Leadership
- Strategic Management
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.
The MAOL program also designs customized organizational leadership certificates for specific applications within an organization or group or for another specific purpose. Usually these certificates consist of three courses (nine credits) offered off campus and are available only to employees or members of the organization or group. Any organization or group wishing to organize a customized certificate should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
