Graduate Certificate Program

  Home>>Students>>Graduate Certificate Program


The Graduate Environmental Ethics Certificate was designed primarily to provide an additional credential to enhance professional development. We train graduate students to make decisions about environmental problems based not only on traditional logic, but also on philosophical, social, political, legal, economic, scientific, and aesthetic considerations. Consequently, graduate students in the Certificate Program benefit by viewing environmental issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. The Graduate Certificate in Environmental Ethics began in 1983 and currently enrolls 20 graduate students. It was the first certificate program of its kind in the United States.

Students indicate an interest in the EECP by filling out a simple application form. There is no application fee. Students complete a program of study form that lists the courses which they intend to take for their Certificate. The Graduate Certificate requires the completion of at least 18 semester hours of course work, including 10 to 11 hours of graduate work in four core courses, 4 to 5 hours of graduate work in approved electives, an oral exam, and an approved research paper in environmental ethics designated for at least 3 hours of graduate credit. The two readers for the required graduate certificate paper can come from any department, but at least one must be an EECP faculty member.
