Which online certificate program is right for you?

An online certificate program isn’t a replacement for a degree, but it can sometimes offer similar benefits for career-minded students. Earning your online certificate gives you the chance to focus on college-level core coursework that helps you learn the skills most relevant to your career. That means you can earn your credential, build college-level skills, and hit the ground running in your career in less time than it would take you to complete a traditional college degree program.

Featured Certificate Programs

To give you an idea of what you can expect from our online bachelor’s degree programs, take a look at a couple of our more popular degrees and what they offer.

Online Certificates in Big Data and Machine Learning
Post-Bachelor’s Level

Big data and machine learning are big business, and organizations across almost every industry are investing billions of dollars in tech solutions to optimize their operations. With that opportunity comes huge potential for growth.

With your online certificate in big data or machine learning, you can prepare for a lucrative, high-impact career in these booming fields. Our program is designed to give you a real-world, project-based education tailored to your personal strengths and goals and help you begin to build a graduate-level foundation in just five courses (15 credit hours) — a fraction of the time it would take to earn a master’s degree.

Want to pursue both the big data and machine learning certificates? Once you finish one certificate program, you can earn your second certificate in only three additional courses (9 credit hours).

Online Nursing Certificates
Post-Master’s Level

If you already have your master’s degree in nursing and are looking for your next step, a post-master’s certificate might be for you. These programs can help you specialize and advance your nursing knowledge after you’ve already completed your MSN, so you can stay up to date and keep progressing.

At Maryville, we offer online nursing certificates in adult-gerontology primary care, pediatric primary care, adult-gerontology acute care, or family nurse practitioner. Depending on the specialization you choose, your program will range from 12 to 21 credits. Best of all, you can benefit from 100% online coursework and complete your clinicals in a local, convenient location.
