Earn Your Online Certificate in Sustainability

This modern undergraduate certificate evaluates the principles of resource and energy sustainability. Students learn about renewable energy technologies that are making it possible for societies to minimize their dependence on traditional and fossil fuel energy sources. Students also research and analyze the economic barriers that are inhibiting widespread adoption of sustainable products and services, while also identifying opportunities to drive acceptance. This exciting discipline helps students to understand the impact of green infrastructure and sustainable design in managing land use policies and development planning.

Classes are taught by practitioner instructors. Many are leaders in public and private sustainability enterprises and they bring their relevant experience into the online classroom. Whether you’re an environmental manager or an individual interested in learning more about sustainability technologies and disciplines, this online program offers you the opportunity to fit a unique and relevant education into your busy life.
