At its December meeting, the OUS Provost’s Council approved OSU’s proposal to offer a Graduate Certificate in College and University Teaching. The certificate program will be effective Fall 2012.
This 18-credit hour graduate certificate is designed to provide advanced coursework and experiential learning opportunities to current OSU graduate students who plan to pursue careers in teaching and instruction in higher education settings or who plan to pursue careers that require similar skill sets in facilitation. While seeking their respective degrees, OSU graduate students can now earn a credential that certifies their teaching and facilitation skills and thus confers advantage in competitive hiring environments. This certificate program is an important investment in the quality of undergraduate instruction at OSU as well as in the future of the teaching professoriate. Congratulations to all who developed and reviewed this proposal.
