The next online cohort will begin in the Fall Semester 2017. Admission deadline is April 1, 2017.
A year plus one extra semester.
The certificate program is designed so that a single cohort of students proceeds through the same sequence of courses at the same time. For this reason, students generally do not take courses without taking the entire certificate. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.
Official transcripts, essay, scholarly writing sample, resume or curriculum vitae, 2 letters of recommendation, and the application form. Interviews may also be required. You should also have a 3.0 GPA for undergraduate and graduate coursework.
The online certificate program courses are *not* individual, self-paced courses. The School of Education Online Teaching and Learning team has developed an instructional system that involves collaboration with other students and interaction with the instructor. The coursework is delivered in our learning management system called Blackboard.
The courses are mostly asynchronous, but occasionally synchronous sessions are scheduled. This means that most weeks, there will be no particular time when students need to be online. Occasionally, the course will meet in “real time” using various web technologies.
Students must be able to log in and participate in course discussions, etc. a minimum of several times a week. It is best if students log in on a daily basis to keep up with the course.

Practicing teachers often treat the certificate program as an “add-on” certificate they can put on their resumes. Likewise, having graduate school credits may be beneficial as well.
The Mind, Brain, and Teaching Certificate can be combined with another certificate program and capstone work to earn a master’s degree. For information about this program, click here.
We currently have an Online Ed.D. program with a concentration in Mind, Brain, and Teaching. The Mind, Brain, and Teaching concentration is not offered every year as an Ed.D. concentration. Please keep checking the Online Ed.D. program pages, available here, for the Online Ed.D. for the next available concentration.
Descriptions may be found on our website.
Online courses each take place over 10-week periods spread across roughly a year and a half.
