MicroMasters® programs are series of graduate level courses that you take to earn credentials in a specific career field. MicroMasters® credentials bridge the gap between education and the workplace and are created by esteemed edX university partners, valued by top companies including Walmart and GE, and linked to specific career outcomes.
MicroMasters® credentials are also a valuable addition to academic portfolios as the credential offers a pathway to credit. MicroMasters® programs have no admissions requirements, and are open to anyone.
Once you’ve successfully earned a MicroMasters® certificate on edX, you can apply to a full Masters program that recognizes the MicroMasters® credential. If you're accepted, you can apply your MicroMasters credit toward a portion of the degree, resulting in an accelerated program.
