Return to Colleges Return to: Colleges

The certificate program in College Student Personnel Administration (CSPA) is designed as a professional development series for professionals working in student affairs on a college campus. It is a twelve credit-hour program comprised of courses that address the core knowledge, theories and philosophical foundations of the student affairs profession. Student affairs professionals who have completed a master's degree in a discipline outside of CSPA are admitted to this program and introduced to the specialized knowledge and practice inherent in the profession. The certificate program is comprised of courses in college student development, student personnel services, professional issues in student services, and an approved elective in the area of either management or counseling/student development (based upon the student's previous training). All classes are taught in a traditional classroom setting. No online options are available.
