Beginning on March 27, Seton Hill University plans to offer two new online professional certificate programs in data analytics and software application development. The programs will have three start times a year and can be completed in less than a year.
“The Allegheny Conference on Community Development’s Inflection Point report highlights the Pittsburgh region’s need for skilled employees, particularly in the technology field as more companies are locating operations in this region,” says Mary C. Finger, Seton Hill president, in a release. “The new certificate programs in data analytics and software application development, along with the newly launched major in cybersecurity, will ensure that Seton Hill is able to meet the region’s needs and provide our students with the education that will lead to successful careers.”
The programs are fully online and will allow students studying in the data analytics program to learn the skills necessary to work with big data, as these employees are becoming critically important for many organizations. The software development certificate program will prepare students to build mobile-friendly web pages, smart device interfaces and more.
“The new certificate programs will provide working professionals with another avenue for learning,” says Seton Hill Provost Susan Yochum in a release. “The online programs, which use a Story-Centered Learning approach, align with Seton Hill’s liberal arts curriculum that encourages students to think critically and problem solve. By providing these certificate programs grounded in real-world scenarios, Seton Hill will help prepare students for positions with regional firms such as Google, Amazon and Uber, in particular. Seton Hill wants to help build the talent base these firms require in order to continue to grow.”
