Early Childhood Trauma and Education Certificate


The certificate in Early Childhood Trauma and Education offers a unique opportunity to learn about children and families across two disciplines. The certificate looks at how children learn, how trauma can impact learning, and what impact trauma has on a “safe learning environment,” as well as how family and communities can help improve a children’s ability to learn and recover from a traumatic experience.

Students can be admitted into a certificate program if they are enrolled in an undergraduate degree program; have earned a bachelor’s degree; or have not earned a bachelor’s degree but would like to earn a certificate. Certificates are official awards. Degree-seeking students will declare the certificate program by submitting a change of program form in SIS and are eligible for aid while pursuing a bachelor degree program. The certificate appears on a student’s official transcript. If you are recent graduate of a UMF bachelor program you do not need to reapply to the university, if you have a completed bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution you will apply as a transfer student, and if you have been out of been away from UMF for more than one year you will need to apply to this program as a readmit student. This certificate program is not eligible for federal financial aid if a student is not currently pursuing a bachelor degree program. Students completing a certificate only are not allowed to participate in Commencement, however the certificate will appear on a student’s official transcript. An official diploma will be issued for this award and will state the area of the certificate earned.
