Become a subject matter expert in your field or explore new topics with an LSU microcredential, or MicroCred program. These 100% online programs are designed for today’s professionals to quickly gain job-specific skills in an affordable and convenient format. Each MicroCred program is either self-paced or term-based, consists of two to six courses, and rewards you with a digital badge upon completion.
Upon completion of your MicroCred, you will receive a unique digital badge that highlights the skills you've acquired. Use the digital badge to bulk up your online resume or website to show off your qualifications.
