Hey all, I am wondering what your thoughts are on any "certificates" or "specializations" within graduate programs? I am referring to those additional credentials that one can add in addition to the graduate degree that they receive. Are they useful in either industry or academia? Or do either hiring committees disregard or not really care about them? I am asking because during this nerve racking waiting time I've been scouring the program websites looking for additional information and have come across various certificates or specialization programs within schools, such as college teaching, conflict study, Middle East study, and countless others. They all look super interesting and for some a lot of work, so I am wondering if they actually bring in any real marketable skills or resume improvements, or if one should really only pursue them for intellectual fulfillment?
Hello, I am wondering if there is much added value in obtaining a certificate when doing a Master's program if my eventual goal is to pursue a PhD? I have been admitted to a 2-year MA program with a RA full tuition fellowship that has a research track thesis to prep for a PhD program. My sub-field is IR. Thank you,
Anyone planning on getting an advanced certificate? I think I'm interested in an Advanced certificate program in autism spectrum disorders but I'm not sure how or if that would benefit me career/money wise. What certs are you thinking of and what are the benefits you've found in receiving them?
