Course Description

Participants in our non-credit certificate programs complete final portfolios that showcase their new skills and apply them to whatever projects they're working on. This workshop session is designed to help you make sure you're meeting the final portfolio criteria. You'll participate in peer review processes, get feedback and fresh perspectives, and come away with everything you need to submit your final portfolio.
