In addition to degrees, we offer certificates in certain specific areas of study. Each certificate is 12 hours of coursework from a list of approved courses, plus 1 hour of presentations (ENSC40001) for a total of 13 hours. The six certificates are:
|Sustainability||For those looking at water, energy and natural resource management||Advising Faculty: Becky Johnson|
|Environmental Management||For those seeking an environmental consulting or compliance-centered career||Advising Faculty: Becky Johnson|
|Water Science||For those interested in surface water quality, hydrology, groundwater, and wetlands||Advising Faculty: Becky Johnson|
|Wildlife Management||For those interested in wildlife management and conservation||Advising Faculty: Dr. Tory Bennett|
|Environmental Modeling & Data Analytics||For those interested in modeling, programming, statistics and data management||Advising Faculty: Dr. Gehendra Kharel|
|Geoscience Fundamentals||For those interested in pursuing professional geoscientist licensure||Advising Faculty: Becky Johnson|
Most certificates have several classes to choose from, along with a 1-hour presentations course. Unlike a minor, courses that you take for your major can “double-dip” for certificates. Additionally, some students who want to pursue more than one certificate and courses can double dip there as well!
We require a grade of C or better for certificate courses.
Certificates are a great way to distinguish yourself and build a resume that gets noticed!
