This Certificate is an interdisciplinary program comprised of only four courses that together provide a strong foundation for understanding the complex relationship between humans and the environment. You will gain a multidisciplinary perspective on a variety of environmental issues including air and water pollution, population growth and distribution, global climate changes, ecosystems and evolution, agriculture and food resources, and renewable and nonrenewable energy, to name a few. Issues are addressed from a local, national, and international perspective as well as from a human and physical perspective, giving you the comprehensive knowledge base necessary for career enhancement and/or graduate school.
This program can be completed in only two quarters, ideal for students and professionals alike. Courses are available online. Two of the four courses are XL courses and are transferable to the UCLA main campus, as well as other UC schools*.
