Comments about Sustainable Natural Resources Graduate Certificate - Online

  • Entry requirements
    Students should have a bachelor’s degree in arts, humanities or science, and preferably have at least two years experience working in a natural resources-related field.
  • Course description
    Students will receive graduate-level university credits and a graduate certificate upon successful completion of this online program. With approval, these courses may be transferred to other graduate degree programs at Oregon State University, and may be applied to the OSU Professional Science Master’s (PSM) in Environmental Sciences. To provide maximum flexibility for potential students, these courses may be taken as stand alone courses or taken as part of the certificate program. For students enrolled in the certificate program, five required courses provide 12 credits of the certificate, and students may choose among the other seven SNR courses for the remaining six credits.
