Prepare a path for careers of the future
The World Economic Forum recommends that to prepare for the jobs of 2020 and beyond, workers must possess a broad, multidisciplinary skill set. Students may come to us with valuable skills, experience, and credentials providing a foundation for a degree path when combined with the diverse degree programs we offer.
Assemble your own pathway to success
You may be able to combine your traditional or alternative higher education and work experience to create a pathway to credit toward select master’s degrees at RIT. You may assemble a series of traditional degree-based and/or nontraditional credentials (certificates, certifications, licenses, badges, apprenticeships, and more) that recognize achievements and provide an accurate assessment of your knowledge, skills, and abilities. Your work experience may also quality for credit toward select master’s degrees at RIT.
Accelerate your master's degree with edX
We partner with edX, the leading nonprofit online learning platform founded by Harvard and MIT to offer RITx MicroMasters® programs. These career-focused, master’s-level online offerings result in an edX credential with a pathway to credit toward an accelerated master’s degree in select degree programs at RIT. We also accept credit from select partner-university edX MicroMasters programs.
Leverage your MicroMasters program certificate
Learners who successfully complete a MicroMasters program and are accepted to RIT will be awarded 9–12 credits (depending upon the program) toward select graduate degree programs at RIT, resulting in a lower cost and accelerated master’s degree.
MicroMasters program pathways to credit at RIT
By using your MicroMasters certificate toward a graduate degree at RIT you will save both time and money. Your time to degree completion may be significantly accelerated since you can take many of the MicroMasters programs at the same time you are pursuing your graduate degree at RIT. You'll also benefit from the significant cost savings of the MicroMasters programs offered on edX. Here are just some of the MicroMasters programs you may use toward select graduate degrees from RIT.
