The faculty of the Public and Environmental Affairs department, along with its Center for Public Affairs, cooperates with the Arts Management and Adult Degree programs to offer a broad-based certificate which documents that students have achieved an understanding of the management principles for nonprofit organizations. Regardless of what area of emphasis a student’s degree program is centered upon, many graduates will find themselves working in, with, or directing nonprofit enterprises. Understanding principles of nonprofit management and developing tools for such management is critical to future success.
A certificate in Nonprofit Management is available to students in any academic program. It consists of a supporting course structure that is especially complementary to academic plans of students in the Integrative Leadership Studies degree program who have chosen to pursue a nonprofit leadership or leadership in public service emphasis. This certificate program is also attractive to students who have chosen other majors, such as Arts Management or Public Administration but desire to earn a free-standing certificate in nonprofit management. In addition to coursework, a critical element of the certificate program is the internship experience requirement.
