What are Microcredentials?

Whether you’re a current student or a working professional, microcredentials will help you develop new, relevant and demonstrable skills that can give you an edge in a competitive job market. 

Microcredentials at the University at Albany are a collection of courses and experiences that teach industry-aligned skills and competencies, which are documented by digital badges. 

Being able to clearly articulate your skills means you’ll be better positioned to bridge the gap between college and career, or between your current job and your dream job. You can also stack microcredentials into larger skillsets and credentials.

Our programs are developed using established faculty governance processes and endorsed by UAlbany, so the skills you learn are portable, meaningful and high quality. The programs are offered at the undergraduate or graduate level, or as an opportunity for continuing education. Many are conveniently offered online.
