Food Systems Education and Administration Certificate (FSEACP) (21–22 credits)

This certificate program is designed to provide practical skills and experiences appropriate for employment in a wide range of careers involving the development, administration, and delivery of educational programs and services provided by both nonprofit and for-profit organizations. Recognizing that interpersonal skills and business savvy are often as important as solid technical and conceptual foundations in a discipline, the program is intended to supplement a variety of discipline-based major programs.

The program explores communication skills; management skills; experience and skill in the development of proposals and reports; the ability to design, implement, and assess educational programs, activities, and related budgets; and the ability to contribute to a program as both an individual and member of a team. An experience-based education component is an integral requisite for the certificate.
