Applying the ITS Certificate Toward a Master's Degree
Some graduate credits earned as a part of the ITSC Program may be applied toward a given master's degree.  Students for whom this certificate would be particularly helpful include Master's Degree candidates in Communications, Library Science, and Education.  Students enrolled in a master's degree program should check with these programs to determine the number of credits from the ITS Certificate that might be applied toward their graduate program.
