What is a certificate in environmental studies? This credential gives students the opportunity to acquire more knowledge in the study of nature and the environment. The objective of this program can include learning how to navigate the fields of energy efficiency, alternative energy and environmental sustainability. Students may also study environmental dilemmas and how to resolve them. Some programs offer the option to take additional subjects like technology and the environment and social science.

Students who take this program can gain a more holistic understanding of environmental issues in general as well as skills in analyzing specific problems in today’s world, problem-solving and communicating with key stakeholders in this field. This can help advance careers.

The cost of a certificate in environmental studies varies depending on tuition rates and the length of the program of choice. Another factor is whether one studies online or on campus.

Students who successfully complete a certificate program in environmental studies may be well-prepared to pursue additional education in this field. Some move on to more advanced degrees in environmental studies or resource management. By advancing their knowledge and skills, they may have the opportunity to undertake careers as conservationists, foresters, ecologists, advocates, policymakers, researchers and other experts who have a passion for preservation or problem-solving when it comes to humans and the natural world.
