How does it work?

a) Take Courses

A Coursera Specialization includes a range of courses that helps you develop a skill. Firstly, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and select the one you’d like to take. While you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, then you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s OK to finish just one course out of all — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time.

b) Hands-on Project

Every Specialization consists of a hands-on project. So, you’ll need to complete the project(s) to complete the Specialization and get your certificate of completion. In addition, if the Specialization comprises a separate course for the hands-on project, you’ll need to complete any of the other courses before you can start it.

c) Earn Your Certificate

When you end each course and complete the hands-on project, you’ll receive a Certificate that you can share with potential employers and your professional network accordingly.
