Certificate Guidelines

Students enrolled in this certificate program are required to begin with “Introduction to Online Learning” and to follow with “Foundations of Curriculum Design and Evaluation.” These two courses set the foundation for the remaining classes in the certificate program.

All new applicants to the certificate program who choose to begin the program with any of the other courses should note the required prerequistes.

Although most students finish their certificate program within one year, in order to be eligible for a certificate from UC San Diego Extension, all required and elective coursework must be completed within five years of beginning a certificate program.

Please Note

EDUC 30989 Introduction to Teaching Online and EDUC 30990 Foundations of Curriculum Design and Evaluation are hard prerequistes for all the other courses throughout the program.
