Graduate Certificate in Conservation Ecology
Students enrolled in any graduate degree program in the University of Georgia may apply to the Graduate Certificate Program in Conservation Ecology and Sustainable Development. This program is designed for students who wish to develop an area specialty that complements their primary degree program. Some recent recipients of the certificate include students from anthropology, forestry, landscape design, education, and law. Students who earn this certificate will receive interdisciplinary preparation to handle the unique, multi-disciplinary problems associated with working in the area of conservation and sustainable development. Students in the natural sciences will add a social science perspective to their understanding of the ecology of development, and students in the social sciences will learn ecological principles so that their decisions can be grounded in biological fact.
