The Digital Curation and Data Management Graduate Academic Certificate (GAC) prepares students and practicing information professionals with the competencies (i.e., knowledge, skills, and abilities) for the emerging digital curation and data management workforce. It also prepares students to qualify for, and excel in, the evolving opportunities in digital curation and data management.
The curriculum for this Certificate consists of four online courses that provide the conceptual foundation and application experiences to develop a defined set of competencies needed to address management, curation, preservation, and stewardship of digital data and information.
Students will learn both fundamental concepts and practical skills needed to perform essential job functions that are relevant to digital curation and data management. The courses provide students hands-on experiences with technologies and applications in a virtual lab setting to develop the necessary technical competencies.
