Storytelling certificate


Return to: Degrees, Certificates, Teacher Certifications

The graduate academic certificate in storytelling provides students with comprehensive knowledge of the role of storytelling in enabling children and adults to understand and make meaning in their lives. Story is the richest heritage of human civilizations. Storytelling has emerged from the oral tradition into modern platforms represented in books, dance, music, theatre, movies, etc. Story preserves, perpetuates, and transforms culture and is finding new applications in education, corporations, industry, and entertainment. Graduates will develop skills to effectively discover, create, compose, tell, and record stories for a variety of settings.

Graduate academic certificates


The department offers graduate academic certificates in multiple areas of professional knowledge and skills.

The graduate academic certificate program is intended for two audiences:

  1. master’s degree library and information science professionals who want to develop expertise in specific areas in libraries or other settings and receive a graduate academic certificate; and
  2. bachelor’s or master’s degreed individuals who want to develop or enhance their knowledge of specific areas in libraries or other settings by taking master’s-level courses and receiving a graduate academic certificate.

Admission information: Prospective students must be admitted to the Toulouse Graduate School, which requires a graduate school application and official transcripts from prior colleges or universities. Students who are awarded graduate academic certificates and later apply for admission to the master’s program will be required to submit additional materials (see Master of Science program).

Program requirements: Graduate academic certificates consist of three or four courses. They can be pursued independently or concurrently with the master’s degree.
