Graduate Certificate in Digital Literacy

After you take the Summer Institute in Digital Literacy for graduate credit, you may choose to enroll in the Graduate Certificate in Digital Literacy, a 12-credit blending learning program from the University of Rhode Island's Alan Shawn Feinstein College of Education and Professional Studies.
