Arts and Humanities Micro-credential

Microcredential Bulletin Banner Gold

As a student with a foundation in the arts and humanities, you can become an employee who possesses flexibility in critical thinking, ethical reasoning, problem solving, and openness to experience. You will assess various points of view and evaluate arguments. Students see the dignity of the individuals around them, find the meaning behind human pursuits, and discover unique paths to meet an objective. A study of the creative elements from the arts and humanities can allow you to stand out in an economy where more work is mechanized. Learning the concepts within the arts and humanities subjects allows you to be a well-rounded individual with skills in media literacy, finding compromise, listening to other perspectives, and looking ahead to trends and possibilities for the future.

Certification, State Board, and National Board Exams

Certain state certification and licensure boards have specific educational requirements for offerings to lead to a license or nongovernmental certification that is a precondition for employment in a recognized occupation.

Unless otherwise specified, Purdue Global's offerings are not designed to meet any specific state’s licensure or certification requirements. If certain licensed occupations, vocations, or professions are not explicitly listed, Purdue Global has not reviewed the licensure or certification requirements of those occupations, vocations, or professions, nor intended the offering to meet such requirements.

You are responsible for understanding the requirements of optional certification exams. Such requirements may change during the course of your studies. You are not automatically certified in any way upon completion of an offering. Although certain offerings are designed to prepare you to take various optional certification exams, Purdue Global cannot guarantee you will be eligible to take these exams or become certified. Your eligibility may depend on your work experience, completion of education and/or degree requirements, not having a criminal record, meeting other certification requirements, or the program or the University itself having appropriate accreditation or licensure.
