Google has launched new online certificate programs in data analytics, project management, and user experience design, through the online learning platform Coursera.

The courses will be taught by Google employees, do not require a college degree, and can be completed in three to six months.

The search giant said it will consider these certificates equivalent to a four-year college degree for related roles at the company.

Google will fund 100,000 need-based scholarships for individuals enrolled in the programs and provide more than $10 million in grants to YWCA, NPower, and JFF, which partner with the company on workforce development opportunities for women, veterans, and underrepresented Americans.
