UA Certificate In College Teaching

 The UA Office of Instruction and Assessment sponsors a Certificate in College Teaching consists of 10 units of coursework that provide foundational information and help develop the competencies necessary to teach effectively in higher education. Courses are eligible for Qualified Tuition Reduction (QTR).  

UA Certificate in Science Communication

Science communication is a critical societal need, yet most people have no formal training in how to communicate science to public audiences and non-scientists. This certificate is open to postdoctoral fellows, who can use Qualified Tuition Reduction (QTR) as UA employees to take courses at a discounted rate.
