In order to be eligible to receive the Advanced Certificate, learners must complete:

  1. 40 credit/hours of approved electives (beyond Foundational certificate (Digital Certificate))
  2. 20 hours Independent Study Project (to be supervised by NBM faculty)

Learners may choose to take any of the workshops, short programs, special sessions and activities in any of the areas offered (see above). Electives must be completed within three years of beginning the Advanced Certificate (i.e. enrollment in your first Elective).
