A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
What is the refund policy?
Can I just enroll in a single course?
Yes! To get started, click the course card that interests you and enroll. You can enroll and complete the course to earn a shareable certificate, or you can audit it to view the course materials for free. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. Visit your learner dashboard to track your progress.
Is financial aid available?
Can I take the course for free?
Is this course really 100% online? Do I need to attend any classes in person?
This course is completely online, so there’s no need to show up to a classroom in person. You can access your lectures, readings and assignments anytime and anywhere via the web or your mobile device.
Will I earn university credit for completing the Specialization?
This Specialization doesn't carry university credit, but some universities may choose to accept Specialization Certificates for credit. Check with your institution to learn more.
How long does it take to complete the Specialization?
You can complete the specialization 24 weeks if you overlap the last week of a course with the first week of the next course. This should work fine because the last week for those overlapping courses has a very light workload
What background knowledge is necessary?
None, the specialization doesn't assume you have any programming or Unity knowledge when you start
Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
The specialization is designed for you to take the courses in order because each of the courses builds on the knowledge you should have learned in the previous courses. If you have previous C# programming experience and have already written some small games in Unity, you can probably shuffle the order around, though you should definitely save the Capstone for last.
What will I be able to do upon completing the Specialization?
You'll be able to program small (by commercial standards) Unity games using C#. Although most of you will certainly need to take more courses and get more experience before you can build commercial-quality games (it takes my UCCS students 4 years to get there), this specialization builds a strong foundation for you to build on.
