Earn Your Online Certificate in Natural Resource Management

Our natural resources are important to sustaining life. With unpredictable weather, an aging infrastructure, and fluctuating populations, it takes critical thinkers to plan and manage these resources now and in the future.

American Public University offers a graduate certificate in Natural Resource Management to help develop strategies around environmental policy issues. The coursework will help you make informed natural resource management decisions based on a better understanding of local, regional, and global connectivity.

With APU's Natural Resource Management graduate certificate, you'll be better prepared to:

  • Analyze barriers to successfully implement natural resource management projects, including climate change.
  • Apply evaluation tools for natural resource sustainability.
  • Design strategies through your knowledge of legal policies, industrial-environmental relations, public and private conflict, and global environmental issues.
  • Hone your critical thinking and problem-solving skills through qualitative and quantitative approaches.
