Undergraduate Certificate of Proficiency in Sustainability
Coordinated through SENS, the Undergraduate Certificate of Proficiency in Sustainability enriches a student's current degree program and helps them stand out from the crowd following graduation. By providing significant exposure to sustainability-related concepts and practices, students gain an understanding of how to integrate human-environmental systems within our current reality and how to critically evaluate sustainability efforts. Students choose their elective courses from one of three areas of focus: natural resources and sustainability, community and sustainability or food systems and sustainability.
The Certificate in Sustainability is intended to give students theoretical, methodological, strategic, and substantive exposure to sustainability-related concepts and practice. Students will choose either the natural resources and sustainability focus, the community and sustainability focus or the food systems and sustainability focus. The certificate will allow students to engage in problem-based, experiential learning across a broad range of sustainability topics. The program will begin in the student’s second year with ENVS 201.
The Course and Program Calendar outlines the program requirements.
