The non-degree Certificate in Applied Learning Sciences is a 15-credit hour graduate program and is focused on human learning, whether alone or social settings. The program’s three specific foci, which students are expected to integrate in a culminating applied project, are:

  • Learning: how people, as individuals, groups, or parts of an organization, learn;
  • Design: the design, implementation, and revision of learning environments that enhance human learning; and
  • Assessment: the assessment of learning and the evaluation of individual, social, technological, and design factors that advance or impede learning.
