Doctoral-Level Certification

The Noel Academy and APU’s Department of Higher Education offer a certificate in strengths-oriented higher education: the Doctoral-Level Certificate in Strengths-Oriented Higher Education.

This certificate is designed to assist higher education leaders, practitioners, and faculty in creating, implementing, and assessing strengths-oriented programs on their campuses in order to enhance the success and persistence of their students.

Intended to deepen the knowledge of the strengths philosophy, its conceptual framework within positive psychology, and the aspects of strengths-oriented programming that contribute to positive outcomes for students, this certificate enables participants to serve their campuses more effectively as educators and leaders.
