Undergraduate Certificate in Project Management

A recent study by Burning Glass, referenced in the Chronicle of Higher Education (09/2015), found that 20% of all jobs that required a bachelor’s degree also required applicants to have certification or licensure in a given skill-area; with project management certification being particularly desirable.

The Certificate in Project Management coursework will be taught by accomplished College of Charleston faculty and practitioners, all of whom hold extensive industry and scholastic experience.

This curriculum will provide the baseline knowledge to help students successfully pursue the highly-sought-after Project Management Institute (PMI) Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. Students will gain the analytical framework, strategic planning skills, and managerial insight necessary to become effective project managers.


All courses follow the School of Professional Studies academic calendar.

Course materials may be accessed online from any location.

Some classes will have regular online meeting times; others will not. The instructor may schedule assignments and exams at specific times.
