Earn a Graduate Certificate in Environmental Management | Applications Due 1/27

In the Environmental Management Certificate program, graduate students from across the University collaborate to tackle real-world problems with profound business, policy, scientific, and engineering ramifications.

Students engage in environmental challenges—including energy, climate change, natural resources management, and pollution—and learn to organize collaborative teams to complete a client-based project. The program spans traditional academic boundaries, allowing students to integrate broad perspectives, knowledge, skills, and interconnections.

Program Elements

  • A 2-quarter Keystone Project with community partners that address contemporary problems in environmental management.

This document serves as a writing sample and should: 1) address in detail how you anticipate the program will help you meet your academic and professional goals; and 2) Demonstrate your experience and interest in the environmental field.
