No specialized scientific knowledge is required for our intellectual property law courses.

An Intellectual Property certificate will be awarded upon completion of three courses. You must choose two of the following: Patent & Trade Secrets Law, Copyright Law, or Trademark & Unfair Competition Law. The third course may be any other Intellectual Property course listed above.
Materials for intellectual property courses online are drawn from statutory and regulatory texts, judicial decisions, and expert commentary. Through a series of multimedia presentations, guided discussions, and individually supervised writing projects, students learn to interpret legal documents and assess their business implications.
All of our Graduate Certificate courses within the intellectual property law program offer intensive, individualized feedback, as well as an opportunity to develop the practical skills necessary to research and communicate effectively about the law.
All nine credits earned in the online graduate certificate program can be applied towards the Master of Science in Jurisprudence degree.
