Syracuse University and Google Re-Define Professional Development With Personalized Google Career Certificates

The certificates prepare learners for high-growth fields in these areas, and no prior experience is required. Each certificate will equip students with job-ready skills in time periods that can range typically up to 6 months, while also connecting them to career resources through the program’s employer consortium.

“The certificate programs from Google are structured to address the skills gap being experienced by a number of employers,” says Arthur Thomas, executive director of the Office of Professional Acceleration and Microcredentials at the College of Professional Studies. “What we’ve created is a hybrid learning experience that builds on the excellent foundations established by Google by adding a dimension of live online sessions with instructors, specific readings, additional videos and discussion groups guided by our faculty. This added perspective and interaction will give our students a distinct advantage as they approach the job market.”

The certificate in cybersecurity is the first of six Google Career Certificates that will be available through Syracuse University.
