Wish you could get a better job before finishing a degree? Now you can!
Earn marketable certificates — while earning a bachelor's degree. Instead of only earning a bachelor's degree, you will earn three certificates and an associate degree along the way.
Make more money
Many students see a boost in their employability after they complete a certificate, and again after they earn a bachelor's degree.
Customize your degree
Certificates allow you to customize your degree. First, pick a bachelor's degree. Then select three certificates to build that degree. You'll earn all of this for the same cost and time as one bachelor's degree!
BYU-Pathway Worldwide provides access to online degrees and certificates from partners BYU-Idaho and Ensign College. (Our partners grant the degree, while BYU-Pathway provides the resources to help students succeed.)

Certificate (14-15 credit hours)
Every degree program starts with a certificate. A certificate can be completed in one year or less, and every course builds into a degree.
This certificate-first approach...
- allows you to build a customized degree program
- provides you with marketable skills early-on in your degree-seeking process
- helps you improve employment faster
- increases your chances of completing a bachelor's degree
Associate Degree (60 credit hours)
Associate degrees are made up of two certificates, plus general and religious education courses. And just like certificates, associate degrees build into a bachelor's degree.
Bachelor's Degree (120 credit hours)
Bachelor's degrees are made up of three certificates, plus general and elective courses. These degrees may help you progress within your career and earn additional income.
