Graduate Home


UMass Dartmouth offers a variety of certificate programs, allowing candidates to pursue various specialized and professional subjects, or gain initial teacher licensure. Many of these certificate programs comprise coursework that can be applied towards a master's degree if the student decides later to make a change in degree status. Financial aid in the form of loans is available to students in formal certificate programs.

Our location in the state's southeastern coast gives UMass Dartmouth's graduate programs a distinctive advantage. For some disciplines, nearby Buzzards Bay and the Atlantic Ocean constitute unparalleled laboratories for study and research. For others, the University's library archival holdings, art studio space, and business/engineering/ science incubator facilities are paramount. For all, the region's rich history, truly diverse populace, and blossoming cultural scene serve well our students' interests, academic and otherwise.
