Environmental Studies Certificate

Environmental studies has been a growing field for several decades, particularly since the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the 1970’s. With the increasing need for continued examination of environmental practices, it is necessary to understand the interplay between the environment and the human dimension.

The Environmental Studies Certificate provides an interdisciplinary understanding of the environment as it examines the human-environment relationship from the historical, philosophical, political, and socio-psychological perspectives. Taken in conjunction with a major area of study, students who complete the certificate will have a broad understanding of environmental issues that prepares them for further advanced environmental study and/or provides them with a base of understanding to work in the area of environmental policy analysis and/or community development.
