The SEBW Global Certificate Program is a 4-course, 12-credit program that has been designed for educators to meet the social-emotional and mental health needs of all students. In addition to providing educators with knowledge in promoting mental health wellness for all students, the SEBW Certificate Program will also train educators in the supplementary and intensive services that go beyond universal prevention and intervention approaches, to meet the full continuum of student need. The program is relevant to an interdisciplinary group of pre-service and in-service educators, including teachers, special education teachers, school counselors, school psychologists, and school administrators. 


Most classes are taught between 16:25-19:05 Eastern Time. Global students should be prepared to join synchronous online classes once or twice a week. The course time is subject to change and will be announced shortly before registration opens for each term. The fall and spring courses include a fieldwork component. Students are responsible for arranging their field experience in their local community.
