Graduate Certificate in Taxation

A customizable graduate certificate program designed to prepare students for a career in the tax field.

ProGRAM Highlights

The graduate certificate in taxation is designed for students and professionals who want a leg up in the tax field, but don't want to commit to an MS in Taxation. The certificate courses are available at each of our locations, or the entire graduate certificate in taxation may be taken over the internet in highly interactive web-based classes.


Some courses taken as part of certificate programs will have prerequisites. These prerequisites must be satisfied (through transfer of equivalent coursework or through taking the courses at Golden Gate) before the certificate courses can be completed.
