Certificate Program Details

The S&T Policy Academy is now offering a certificate program for individuals who complete all four of our classes in addition to the digital badges for each class (see below). 

In order to obtain a certificate, you need to complete all four classes below.  Classes may be taken in any order.

  • Level 1: Science and Technology Policy & Careers 101

  • Level 2: Public Policy Analysis

  • Level 3: Analytical Methods

  • Level 4: Program Evaluation

If you sign up for all four courses at once, you will get the following in addition to the benefits offered by each course:

(1)  The ability to participate in the Q&A sessions for any cohort, and access the teaching videos immediately after sign-up. 

(2)  One hour of career counseling, resume review, and job-, internship, or fellowship-hunting advice (a $300 value). 

After the current set of classes end, we will begin offering classes in order beginning with Level 1 in the summer of 2021 (late-June to early August), Level 2 during the holiday break (Dec-Jan), Level 3 around spring break (March-April), and then Level 4 (May-June).  Note that each class includes three 30-minute coaching sessions, so you can ask questions of the instructor at any time, even if your schedule does not align well with any cohort.

If you have taken one or more S&T Policy Academy courses prior to April 1, 2021, you will still qualify for the certificate if you take the remaining classes if you have not already done so.  If you have already taken an equivalent to the Level 1 class (e.g., CASE workshop), we will drop the requirement for that class.
