The Graduate Certificate in Environmental Assessment programs is an internet-based online and distance education program. There are no seated or face-to-face classes, which allows us to better meet the flexible access needs of adult learners in the field of environmental assessment across the state, over the nation, and throughout the world. Students have contact with numerous faculty who come with a diverse set of research backgrounds. The program allows students to choose from a fixed set of courses from our Master of Environmental Assessment Program.
