Foundations of Instructional Design Certificate

The Foundations of Instructional Design (FIND) graduate professional certificate provides foundational knowledge and skills in instructional design for educational and organizational professionals seeking to enhance their current positions. This includes K-12 teachers and higher education faculty as well as organizational trainers. The certificate program is grounded in SCPS’s well-established Master of Professional Studies (MPS) in Instructional Design program, which prepares students to become generalist instructional designers equipped to work in a variety of fields and professional settings.

The 12-credit hour certificate includes courses offered in 8-week sessions in a fully online format with evening synchronous meetings. Upon completing the certificate, students can apply for admission into the MPS in Instructional Design program, where their four graduate-level FIND certificate courses will count toward that graduate degree’s requirements.
