With the increased regional and global attention on environmental issues, the Environmental Science Graduate Certificate is well suited for both current and future students interested in careers in the environmental field or for those students who are educators. This certificate provides students with a broad overview of the biological basis of environmental science with a focus on human-environment interactions and organismal biology. With environmental jobs expected to increase by 11% by 2024 according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics1, this certificate will improve a student’s position to step into an environmental field or move into further education avenues.
This certificate consists of four courses (12 credits) that are part of the online Biology master’s of science.
