Graduate Certificate in Digital Retail Merchandising

You are here

The College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism offers three 12-hour graduate certificates which will provide access to the knowledge, experiences, research skills, and critical analysis offered at the graduate level. In addition, the certificates will provide the recipients with credible documentation of the body of knowledge that they have gained at the University of North Texas.

Who is suited for a graduate certificate?
Students who may not be able to or interested in completing a 36-hour degree program.
Working professionals with time and place constraints who need some re-tooling and updating in their fields.
Company-supported employees who seek advanced education to meet professional development requirements for periodic reviews and/or promotion.
Geographically-isolated individuals who do not have access to advanced education in merchandising and hospitality management.

Will a graduate certificate count toward a graduate degree?
Certificate students who choose to continue in a degree program are required to meet all the requirements, including GPA, GRE or GMAT, and prerequisites, of students seeking a degree in the college. Satisfactory work (minimum of a B grade) on graduate courses for the certificate may be applied to a 36-hour Master of Science degree program upon advisement of the graduate adviser, department chair, and the student’s major professor, who will be selected when proceeding for a degree.
