10 Best Post-Graduate Degree Programs

Many masters' degree programs today offer optional additional education in the form of certificates, or some form of additional credential based on a small group of highly focused classes. Our inventory of post-graduate programs includes examples of online options for these types of educational enhancements offered for the most popular master's degrees and for professionals who need training in a specific area. Today's graduate level education programs incorporate thousands of people who are retraining themselves for career changes, along with the traditional graduate students who are putting in the five or six years to complete a master's degree while still in college. A graduate certificate program is one way to achieve focused professional specialization quickly.
