City University of Seattle provides an Undergraduate Certificate in Child and Adolescent Services for those interested in serving a younger population in a variety of social services or counseling environments. You can complete the certificate on its own or in conjunction with our Bachelor of Arts in Human Services or Bachelor of Arts in Applied Psychology programs.
This program will help you gain an understanding of the biological, social and psychological issues that affect child and adolescent development and gain skills to help you make accurate assessments in the field. Our faculty is made up of current field experts who will help you apply your learning throughout the program.
This fully accredited, 25-credit program is offered completely online so you can continue to work or meet other responsibilities while you pursue certification. CityU of Seattle is a leader in the online and distance education industry with over 60 online programs to choose from. Connect with a CityU advisor to learn more about our online child and adolescent services certificate.
CityU’s online child and adolescent certification works as a great stepping stone toward a bachelor’s degree but stands on its own to help you qualify for entry-level roles in service organizations such as youth centers, counseling practices, group homes and crisis centers. You may also choose to pursue further studies in human services, school counseling, private counseling or psychology.
