Differences Between Degrees and Certificates

A degree is a program of study that leads to a baccalaureate degree, a master's degree or doctoral degree.

A certificate program is a program of study that prepares students for certification for a specific career with a very focused area of study.

More information about the certificate programs offered through Cal Poly Pomona's College of the Extended University are available on the Extended University website.  Additional  information about the certificate programs can be found on the College of Education and Integrative Studies website.
