Graduate Certificate - IT Fluency for Professional Practice
This program is designed for professionals in a number of fields who want to become comfortable and confident using information technology. Although the program does not create or certify IT professionals, it provides the skills and language necessary to work with information technology and IT professionals within one’s own individual work community.
The certificate develops fluency in three areas:
- Concepts – fundamental principles on which information technology is founded (computers, networks, the Internet, databases and digital representation of ideas)
- Skills – competence with contemporary computer applications and the ability to transfer skills to new applications and versions of software
- Capabilities – ability to apply information technology to complex situations
The certificate can benefit professionals who want to enhance current skills, acquire new skills, and learn how to use technology more effectively within their own professional practice.
You will complete one foundation course and four elective courses, which allows you to have a common experience with other students and the flexibility to apply course work to your field.
