Non-Profit Management Certificate

Certificate Description 

The nonprofit sector has experienced exponential growth in the last few decades. Increasingly, governments at the local, state, and national levels have looked to the nonprofit community to deliver goods and services on behalf of government. Community needs have also grown, and nonprofit activities have expanded to meet those needs. As the nonprofit sector continues to grow, there is a need for workers in this sector to prepare to assume management and leadership positions. The Graduate Certificate Program in Nonprofit Management at the University of North Florida is intended to equip members or aspiring members of the nonprofit community in the northeast Florida region with relevant professional administrative and managerial skills. The certificate is also intended to benefit students in other graduate programs who desire to enhance their professional opportunities through acquiring skills in nonprofit management. The graduate courses included in the nonprofit certificate program can be applied toward degree credit in the UNF Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree program, should certificate seekers desire to continue their graduate experience by entering the MPA program.

Student Learning Outcomes

Students who complete the certificate will be able to:

  • Lead and manage in nonprofit governance;
  • Analyze, synthesize, think critically, solve problems and make decisions.
