There are four core courses in the MET program.

Laddering to Master’s

Students in the certificate program can apply to the master’s program at any time. Once accepted into the master’s program, students are no longer eligible to obtain an MET certificate.  Note that the total time between beginning the certificate and completing the master’s degree may not exceed five years.

  • MET Graduate Support – connecting interested applicants with current or graduated MET students to answer questions about the program from the student perspective.
  • Graduate Profiles – we encourage our graduates to keep in touch and provide a webpage to post their profiles.
  • MET Blog – posting news and items of interest related to the program.
