CalArts Extended Studies certificates, micro-credentials, and specializations recognize the value of ongoing professional development for the creative arts.

Certificates offer the opportunity to customize your studies with core and elective courses. Take five online or on-campus courses to gain in-depth knowledge and skills in a particular subject area.

Micro-credentials are shorter certifications that demonstrate specific skills and competencies.

Specializations recognize the completion of an online, self-directed, courses series delivered on the Coursera and Kadenze platforms.
