Curriculum and Pedagogy in Higher Education

The Certificate in Curriculum and Pedagogy in Higher Education is designed for higher education instructors who want to improve their pedagogical practice as well as those with future plans to teach in institutions of higher education. The program is completely online, allowing students to complete their coursework from anywhere around the world.

You'll be prepared to effectively teach adult learners in the post-secondary student populations. This certificate develops pedagogical and curricular skills based on the Jesuit principles of context, experience, reflection, action, and evaluation. This is the only Jesuit institution to offer such a certificate.

By engaging in reflective, action-oriented classrooms with a focus on social justice – we prepare visionary graduates to make a difference in their worlds through the implementation of socially just pedagogical practices.
