    Hello All,

    I have to take 3-4 math courses for a degree... Since it's a subject directly related to my career I was wondering if anyone knows about a Math Certificate program that I could do online as I would rather take a few more courses and get it since it would be better for my resume anyhow.

    I would appreciate suggestions related to B&M non-profit institutions from the US, Europe, Canada or Australia.

    Thanks! JFO

    The best one I can think of is offered by the University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign. It's a highly ranked engineering school (top 10 for most programs). A little bit pricey, but I think it's worth it:

    Thank you it looks great! Although it is a bit pricey... Anyone knows about a cheaper alternative?

    Thank you for your suggestion. I considered the Open University during my research of potential schools for an online degree. The problem that I have with them is that I'm not living in the UK or anywhere in Europe. This greatly limits the number of courses that I can take with them and eliminates the possibility of getting a certificate. Also, for non-European/UK residents the Open University is an expensive alternative.

    I was disappointed as everything I read about the Open University was excellent. Any other suggestions? I will be extremely grateful for any additional help.

    I don't know if this would meet your needs - but Chadron State College offers an online MA-Education in Mathematics:

    Thank you all. I already asked for further information on the University of Illinois certificate program. I'm not going to register until August so if anyone knows about other programs, please let me know.

    Thanks again!

    Hi there,

    Lesley University, based out of Boston, is a regionally accredited, nonprofit university. They were ranked #82 US News World Best Colleges 2010. They offer a math certification program. I can refer you over.
