Certificate in Environmental Management

The Environmental Management certificate program provides students with the tools and techniques they need to understand the complex issues of future environmental management. The program blends courses in fundamentals such as regulations and compliance issues, with leading edge concepts in life-cycle analysis, risk management, and remediation technologies. Students must complete five courses, including one course in each of three focus areas: environmental engineering and technology, environmental health, and policy. The two remaining courses can be selected from any of the focus areas.
