Texas A&M University-Kingsville will offer digital badges starting Fall 2022.  The TAMUK Center for Continuing Education office will be the source of information and registration.

 

What is a digital badge? Throughout their time at TAMUK, students are acquiring skills and knowledge important to their career path. Digital badges have become the way businesses check on a student’s level of professionalism and job skills/abilities. While pursuing a degree or certificate, students can leverage microcredentials and digital badges to find part-time employment, internships, and work-study programs that propel their learning and career pathways.
