I’ve previously discussed the need for all students to complete technical or other certification programs by high school graduation, to primarily benefit students who do not pursue higher education. Students who attend traditional colleges/universities should also have the privilege of completing certification programs as course electives and graduating with possibly multiple certificates or diplomas juxtapose their college degrees; the prescribed could include courses like web design, paralegal studies, notary education, cosmetology/barbering, Microsoft, and any of various computer or information technology courses, et cetera, et cetera…

What I’m prescribing is distinguishable from dual degree or continuing education programs in that multiple technical/ vocational certification programs could be completed within a single degree program, or students would not have to subsequently matriculate into other schools or programs to complete the technical/ vocational certification courses…

This could significantly increase the worth of the conventional college/university degree by qualifying students/graduates for more career options without added cost or incurring of debt, and without requirement to invest time beyond fulfillment of major degree program requirements.
