University of Maryland Global Campus Asia offers programs of study leading to lower-level certificates in specific academic areas including accounting foundations, computer studies, foreign language area studies (Japanese and Korean), and management. All requirements involve lower-level courses, although appropriate upper-level courses may be substituted.
These certificate programs are not terminal programs if you wish to continue working toward your associate's or bachelor's degree. You may pursue a degree and certificate(s) simultaneously or pursue a degree after completing the certificate(s), but the application for any certificate(s) completed while in progress toward the associate's or bachelor's degree must be submitted before award of the degree. If you apply for your certificate after your degree has been awarded, additional coursework will be required to complete the certificate. Contact your academic advisor for more information.
