Optional Certificate of Research

Sometimes you'll find additional education, such as a Ph.D., is required and/or advantageous to reach your career goals. To prepare you for the rigor of these programs, we offer an application for a Certificate of Research to further the MQM degree. The Certificate is taken during the summer and in Terms 6 and 7 in the fall after completion of the regular MQM program. You must apply by February 1, during Term 4 (Spring 1), and you would defer graduation until December when the Certificate of Research is completed.
