Science, Technology, and Public Policy (STPP) graduate certificate program
The Ford School of Public Policy’s STPP program is devoted to interdisciplinary research and teaching on the politics and processes of science and technology policymaking at the federal, state, and local level. Their graduate certificate and postdoctoral fellowship programs, as well as seminars and conferences, help researchers bridge the gap between STEM fields and government science policy.
Rackham Professional Development DEI Certificate
This program prepares Graduate Students and Postdocs to work in a diverse environment while fostering a climate of inclusivity. This includes attending a core set of DEI workshops, a set of workshops focused on an area of specialty (teaching, research, leadership, or service/engagement), and preparing a DEI statement.
Sustainability Graduate Certificate
At SEAS, sustainability is examined by analyzing human behavior as it relates to conservation efforts, environmental education, and information, observing federal water policies and river systems, and more. If you are interested to find the emerging global green economy intriguing and seek a position in the private for-profit, public or non-profit sector, this program may be a good fit.

Graduate Data Science Certificate
The overarching goal of the Graduate Data Science Certificate Program is to train a cadre of skillful data scientists with significant multidisciplinary knowledge, broad analytical skills and agile technological abilities. The program emphasizes the practice of modeling using modern technology to handle large, incongruent, and heterogeneous collections of data.
Climate Change Solutions Graduate Certificate
This certificate program will: (1) Train interdisciplinary students about the basics of climate change science and equip them to explore solutions needed to mitigate climate change and to adapt to future changes; and (2) Develop skills in graduates to think in a systems way about the causes and consequences of climate change and enable innovative approaches that focus on climate adaptation and resilience.
Science Communication Fellowships
The U-M Museum of Natural History uses the NSF-supported Portal to the Public guiding framework to bring scientists and public audiences together in face-to-face interactions that promote appreciation and understanding of current scientific research. With guidance from Museum program staff, Fellows develop meaningful, inquiry-based and materials-rich table-top activities that showcase their research then share these activities with K-12 students and the public at two or more outreach events.
