Computing for Educators

The graduate certificate in Computing for Educators is for those desiring to teach computational thinking, computer coding, and computer science skills problem-solving courses primarily in grades 9-12. The 15-credit certificate is completely online with most courses being taught simultaneously on campus.

The certificate, designed to educate teachers with little to no or moderate current computer science and programming skills, prepares them with foundational coding and database knowledge enabling them to teach dedicated computer coding and computer science problem-solving courses.

Graduate students completing the certificate acquire the requisite knowledge and skills preparing them to teach both of the Computer Science Advanced Placement (AP) courses recommended to be taught in high schools.
