Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) and Google are partnering to offer Google Career Certificates to thousands of for-credit and non-credit students. This new online initiative is open to PASSHE students and the community to help thousands of people get the skills for some of the most in-demand jobs.   

Google Career Certificates prepare people with skills for jobs in cybersecurity, data analytics, digital marketing and e-commerce , IT Support, project management and user experience (UX) design.   


PASSHE Students 

Participating PASSHE universities will add value to undergraduate students by pairing the online training alongside regular courses, so students earn college credit and an industry-recognized certificate, which can give graduates an advantage in the job market.  

Workers (non-students) 

Universities also will offer the certificates through non-credit options to the community and partnerships with employers. The certificates can be completed online within three to six months of part-time study. No degree or experience required.  

Employer Collaboration  

Pennsylvania employers are invited to partner with a PASSHE university to offer Google Career Certificates to train and strengthen your employees’ skills. Contact the PASSHE university in your region for information.

Participating universities in the launch phase of the initiative are Commonwealth, East Stroudsburg, Indiana, Kutztown, PennWest, Millersville, Shippensburg and Slippery Rock.
