The Certificate in Developmental Disabilities is a 15-credit-hour interdisciplinary program. Students must successfully complete and pass 9 student credit hours of CHDD coursework and pass 6 student credit hours in pre-approved elective courses within the student’s own or another academic department. Included in this work is a final capstone project.

The part-time graduate certificate program employs flexible online distance education along with interactive classroom sessions designed to accommodate the schedule of graduate students enrolled in degree programs and the work schedules of community professionals. Scholarships may be available for qualified candidates. At this time, CHDD courses are open only to students enrolled in this certificate program.
