Digital Badges


St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers six graduate digital badges: Autism, Behavioral Research Methods, Curating, Environmental Analysis, Museum Education, and Museum Studies. Digital badges are online credentials you can display on a variety of platforms, including LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and on your resume or curriculum vita (CV). They demonstrate your skill and knowledge in the designated area and give you a professional edge in a competitive global market.

These digital badges can be earned independently or on the way to a full graduate degree. Courses applied to badges at St. John’s may be applied to master’s and graduate certificate programs within the College, with approval of the program director and Dean’s office.

Please note that if digital badges are earned independently from a full graduate degree as a non-matriculated student, no federal financial aid is available for coursework.
