You will earn the same diploma as our on-campus students
The advanced graduate certificate in child and family advocacy will provide students with the opportunity to develop skills to better advocate for the families, children and communities they serve. Students will acquire greater knowledge of the regulatory environment and processes (both governmental and private) in the areas in which they work and will be better able to network within those environments. More specifically, students in this certificate should gain analytical skills regarding community and institutional organizations, historical and cultural differences in human development and of power relations and justice. They should be able to apply these skills in a “service-learning” environment, in addition to demonstrating critical thinking and graduate-level writing skills in the online-classroom environment.
