The specialized coursework, combined with required teaching experience, may ensure graduates abilities to perform effectively and efficiently when fulfilling the objectives of a community college. The certificate program includes several Masters level courses covering topics of interest such as: general pedagogy, curriculum development, instructional communication and assessment, effective learning strategies and techniques, and diverse student populations.
