every baccalaureate major.
Certificate Programs for Professional Advancement
UNHM’s credit certificate programs are designed for individuals
who want to enhance their credentials for a new position or to take the
first step toward a college degree. The programs also meet the needs of
working professionals with postsecondary degrees who need to expand their
knowledge or update their skills.
Each program provides a concentrated learning experience in a specific
subject area designed for students with varied educational backgrounds
and experience. Students must complete four required courses at UNHM in
their chosen program to earn a certificate. The college’s accessible
course schedules allow students to attend day, evening, or Saturday classes,
full or part time.
Communication Skills for Managers (4 courses, 16 credits)
The fundamentals of oral and written communications are presented in
this certificate program. Critical thinking is emphasized. Students learn
to read, write, and speak more effectively both personally and professionally.
Business and Accounting Skills for Managers (4 courses, 16
Students gain a basic understanding of American businesses and how they
work. A general overview of the functional areas in business as well as
fundamental concepts of accounting, finance, and the use of computers
to manage information is presented in the coursework.
Human Behavior Studies (4 courses, 16 credits)
An understanding of psychological, cultural, and social aspects of human
behavior is developed in this program. The coursework explores how culture
and intellect influence behavior and communication with others.
College Transition Program
The University of New Hampshire at Manchester’s College Transition
Program (CTP), enables students to begin their University studies as candidates
for the associate in arts degree while receiving an intensive yearlong
(two semesters) plan of academic support and study skill enhancement.
Students are identified as CTP eligible during the standard admission
application review process and may enter the program during the fall or
spring semester. Typically, CTP students register for credit-bearing courses
on a part-time basis. In some instances, CTP students may be required
to supplement their academic schedules with noncredit coursework to strengthen
writing or quantitative skills.
Attendance at the New Student Orientation and enrollment in the CTP
studies skills lab are required for all CTP students. After orientation,
CTP students work closely with academic advisers to design appropriate
course plans, establish performance goals, determine which learning support
services are required, and monitor academic achievement.
Students who successfully complete two semesters of CTP may continue
on to earn their associate degree through either full-time or part-time
UNHM Application Deadlines
The application deadline for the fall semester is June 15 and for the
spring semester is November 1. For priority consideration for financial
aid, the application deadline is May 1 for the following academic year.
