American College of Education offers the online Graduate Certificate in Content Area Instruction. This certificate is designed for those teaching secondary or college-level content areas or disciplines. It examines the major tenets for understanding fields of study. Using intellectual processes to encourage lifelong learning, the courses are crafted to build patterns of thought fostered by delivery methods, cultural perspectives, and changes of time, which influence and support the integration of ideas and concepts.

Learners investigate different perspectives by using evidence-based research to encourage real-world applications, effective problem solving, and building relationships through communication. This approach establishes fundamental constructs that influence the understanding of underlying concepts essential in content areas.
