Admission to the Program

For admission, an applicant is required to have an undergraduate or graduate degree in science, engineering, technology, math, or a related field; or be currently enrolled in a graduate program in one of those fields; or be working or have a history of having worked as a scientist or a science communicator. The applicant must have had an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher.

A committee consisting of the Graduate Program Director and four program faculty will evaluate all applications from non-SBU students, including exceptions to the requirements.

Applicants may be invited to interview via video conference.

The Graduate Program Director will meet with new students upon enrollment to help them chart a path for the successful completion of their certification during the duration of their graduate studies. Program faculty and the Graduate Program Director will have regular contact with students. For individuals concurrently enrolled in other degree programs, faculty will help students align their certificate coursework to complement requirements in their home disciplines.
