For those who are starting out a career in Extension and would like a longer and more comprehensive onboarding experience, consider the Teaching in Extension graduate certificate. This 13 credit option includes the three core courses plus an elective of your choice. The certificate option can be 2 or 3 semesters (one to one and half years) and is a great cohort option for learning the ins and outs of Extension work, engage in peer networking, and have an advising mentor available to support you throughout the entire length of the program.

FAQs for Learn Calendar Users:

Will a recording be available?

That is entirely up to the host of this webinar/online event.
