Certificate Programs


Students enrolled in BGS doctoral programs have the option of applying to any of a variety of certificate programs. These programs provide a valuable opportunity to pursue specialized scientific and professional interests.

Several of the programs are closely affiliated with BGS, for example, they receive various forms of support from BGS and provide courses and other forms of programming commensurate with BGS standards and objectives. Students generally apply for admission to these programs at the time of their doctoral application, however exceptions exist.

Other programs are not as closely linked to BGS but are of potential benefit nonetheless.

Students interested in a certificate program should review ‘Policies Governing Participation of BGS Students in Certificate Programs’.

Authorization is required through the form ‘Authorization to Participate in a Certificate Program’.
