New in 2020, The American Women's College offers undergraduate certificates for credit. These certificates may be earned outside of a degree program. They also can complement a college degree you are working towards now or have already earned.
Enhance Your Professional Skills and Knowledge
Certificates offered through The American Women’s College (TAWC) provide working adults with high-quality, career-related and workforce-ready learning experiences that will enhance skills and knowledge in a variety of fields.
All TAWC undergraduate certificates are appropriate for those with or without prior college-level learning. You will earn college credit for a completed certificate.
Credits you earn have the potential to be stacked later into one of our undergraduate degree programs for women. Your Admissions Counselor can help you assess which prior college credits and certificate credits may be accepted into your degree program.
TAWC certificates are also appropriate if you have earned a bachelor’s degree already and now wish to complement your undergraduate degree with additional professional expertise.
