In addition to degree programs, ACT also offers specialized certificate programs in various fields.
Certificate programs are typically short-term and cover a specific subject in depth. ACT departments offer certificate programs in addition to the regular degree programs. These are ideal for students of other universities or other disciplines who want to gain expertise and know-how in specific subject areas.
