Graduate Education

In collaboration with the College of Continuing & Professional Studies, the Eli Coleman Institute for Sexual and Gender Health offers several options for graduate-level learning. Fully online with two stackable certificates, these courses meet the unique needs of aspiring or current sex therapists, sex educators, and others working in related practices.

Each human sexuality course is approved by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) for 35 continuing education (CE) credits. These CE credits may be applied toward AASECT certification and renewal of certification. Completion of this program does not ensure or guarantee AASECT certification.
