To complete a Specialization and earn a Specialization Certificate, you will need to:
- Complete all courses in a Specialization in the same language.
- Earn a Course Certificate for each course in the Specialization.
- Complete the Specialization's Capstone Project.
- Pay for the Specialization.
When you join a course, you'll get personalized deadlines for that course to help you stay on track. If you fall behind, you can reset your deadlines.
You can take the courses in a Specialization in any order, including taking multiple courses at the same time. However, we strongly suggest taking the courses in the order recommended by the Specialization.
You can re-attempt a course in a Specialization for as long as your payment or subscription is active.
Count previously completed courses
If you've already completed a course in a Specialization and earned a Course Certificate, it will count toward your Specialization Certificate, even if you earned the Course Certificate before you enrolled in the Specialization.
If you completed work in a course but didn’t get a Certificate, you will need to get a Certificate for the course to count toward your Specialization.
Some Specializations are available in multiple languages. In these Specializations, you must complete every course and the Capstone Project in one language to earn a Specialization Certificate.
For example, if you take the Chinese-language version of course 1, and the English-language versions of courses 2, 3, and the Capstone, you will not earn a Specialization Certificate.
