Grad School Gets Boost from Campaign


Fast track your career with a graduate certificate from UNC Charlotte

Graduate certificate programs can provide individuals with an important educational credential in a focused area of study, and the University is seeking to increase program visibility of the nearly 40 graduate certificate programs through a new mini-marketing campaign. 

“A graduate or post-master’s certificate enables individuals to obtain specialized training in a particular academic or occupational area that can help advance their careers,” said Karla Stanchina, manager of communications for the Graduate School.

To support the initiative, the Graduate School increased its number of open houses where prospective students can meet in person with University personnel to learn about the certificate programs and how they can enhance careers, increase professional knowledge and lead to further graduate studies.

“Our open houses, being held on campus and at UNC Charlotte Center City, provide individuals a face-to-face opportunity to interact with us, and they are a great way to support the overall marketing campaign,” said Stanchina, who added the school also offers online open houses. 

Upcoming open houses are as follows:

Wednesday, July 16: Graduate Certificate Virtual Open House
​Wednesday, July 23: Graduate Certificate Open House
