Do I have to take the classes in order?

PHS 101-105 may be taken in any order. PHS 106: Capstone is assigned after successful completion of PHS 101-105.

Do I have to take the full certificate, or can I take courses individually?

We recommend the full certificate, but students are welcome to register in individual courses.

If I register in individual courses to start, can I still complete the full certificate?

Absolutely! You may register in the full certificate at any time.

How do I register in the full program?

Register in any of the PHS courses available and the certificate will be added to your account. If you don’t see the certificate program in your account, contact us for assistance.
