Certificates of Advanced Study Course Catalog

Certificates of Advanced Study (CAS) are 15- to 21-credit programs that can be taken in conjunction with a master’s degree program. Because CAS programs share a number of courses with the iSchool’s master’s degree programs, many CAS courses can be counted toward both the CAS requirements and the master’s degree requirements concurrently.

The iSchool offers the following four CAS programs:
