Certificate in Computer Software

The Department of Computer Science and the Division of Continuing Education offer a non-degree Certificate in Computer Software that requires five courses (at least 15 credits) in approved CS courses at UVM.

The certificate program offers a flexible selection of courses to meet individual needs. For example, one can design a program in preparation for admission to the Master of Science program for students whose undergraduate degree is from another academic discipline.
