Clark's School of professional studies to offer two new certificates

Clark University’s School of Professional Studies (SPS) will offer two new certificates in fields including Health Informatics and Educational Leadership starting this fall.

The school has also reduced the requirements needed to get a Master’s degree, cutting the number of courses required to 10 from 12.

“Members of the Greater Worcester community have looked to Clark’s School of Professional Studies (formerly the College of Professional and Continuing Education) to help them stay relevant in a 21st-century workforce for more than 70 years. We’re pleased to be able to expand our offerings in these burgeoning new disciplines and are committed to making sure that busy working professionals are able to obtain the skills they need to advance their careers more quickly and at a reduced cost,” said Assistant Dean Mary Piecewicz.

The Program

The School of Professional Studies will offer a Certificate in Health Informatics, a field the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicted will grow 15 percent by 2024.

Clark’s certificate is made up of four courses and enables candidates to explore data analysis tools and gain insight into healthcare information technology and management.  Health informatics jobs range from risk adjustment to medical quality assurance. 

The Certificate in Educational Leadership, which comprises six courses, helps educators and administrators at all levels to build competencies in leadership, participatory decision-making, and educational policy development and analysis, thus preparing them to be the innovators of tomorrow. Professionals in the field of education who pursue this certificate often include superintendents and district-level administrators, directors of charter management organizations, administrators at state agencies, and experienced principals and teachers who aspire to system-level roles.

Certificates can be earned through online or hybrid courses. Completed course credits may be applied to respective master’s programs.
