Bulletin for our UW-Stout Certificate Holders


Happy Holidays to everyone!

I'd like to call your attention to a few new courses that graduates of our E-Learning and Instructional Design Certificate programs might want to consider.

Adding additional units to your Certificate areas will help you establish your subject matter expertise. When it comes to college and university employment.  Most schools want to see 18+ graduate units beyond your masters degree on your transcripts.  With this in mind...

If you have the E-Learning Certificate, consider earning the Instructional Design Certificate.
