Why UConn?

Why UConn?

You'll be immersed in research-informed content: UConn is designated as a R1 Research University, the highest designation of research activity. As such, the content of our online graduate certificate programs is research-informed. Why is this key? The knowledge you gain is based upon the best available evidence of what's likely to be most effective with the populations of individuals you will be working with. Moreover, much of that evidence comes directly from research conducted by UConn faculty.

Certificate credentials are UConn credentials: Just like every undergraduate and graduate degree our students earn, every online graduate certificate we award bears the signature of the University of Connecticut—it's your assurance that your credentials come straight from one the nation's Top 25 Universities. In addition, the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Connecticut is regarded as one of the best in the country. Dr. Linda Pescatello, who teaches the Exercise Prescription Online Graduate Certificate Program, is also a professor of our doctoral program, which is presently ranked among the top 10 programs in the U.S. by the National Academy of Kinesiology.
