Careers

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), undergraduate certificates are a great way to fast-track your career in an affordable way.

When time and money are a major concern, certificates allow recipients to gain skills in their field of choice in a relatively short period of time, usually less than a year, and for a price that won’t break the bank.

Many of IU Southeast’s certificate programs are stackable – meaning that you can use the credit hours earned for your certificate toward an associate or bachelor degree program.
