A graduate certificate provides a mechanism for bestowing formal recognition of focused graduate study in a specialized area that is less comprehensive than required for a master’s degree. At Iowa State University, a graduate certificate may be earned either before, after, or concurrently with the masters or doctoral degree. As such, the standards of admission and the standards to which a certificate student is held are equivalent to those expected of a master’s student. We offer two graduate certificates out of the Graduate Program in Seed Technology and Business, the Seed Science and Technology Certificate and the Seed Business Management Certificate.
