Credit-Bearing Courses are individual courses that carry academic credits. These are single courses from our degree-program catalog offered to learners who are interested in furthering their knowledge and professional development. The academic credit earned may be able to be applied toward a degree program at Walden. If you choose to apply to a Walden University degree program, the university will review any prior learning completed and may award credit towards the Walden degree program.
Professional Development offerings are non-degree, non-credit courses. They are intended for learners who want to gain general knowledge, learn a new skill, upgrade existing skills, or enrich their understanding about a wide range of topics. Professional Development offerings are NOT applicable toward a degree.
The Professional Certificates are not academic or post-graduate certificates and do not lead to licensure, certification, or other authority to practice.
