  • Course description
    Certificate in Social Strategies for Environmental Protection
    Solving environmental problems often requires social intervention skills and not just an understanding of the biophysical environment. This certificate program is designed to give students, regardless of their major, an understanding of individual behavior, social organization and values, politics, law, and communication as these fields relate to environmental intervention. The aim is to provide action-oriented training in skills that strengthen environmental protection efforts. The program culminates in a practicum experience in which these skills are applied to an environmental issue of current concern.
