The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Sustainability provides foundational and advanced knowledge and skills necessary for transitioning to sustainability-related careers in a variety of sectors from sciences to the arts, from business to education, and from governmental to non-governmental organizations. The curriculum includes the student’s choice of a selection of sustainability-focused classes in the Department of Geography, Environment, and Sustainability; in addition, the student chooses, in consultation with the advisor, a sustainability-relevant class from another department at UNC Greensboro. The core Seminar in Sustainability (GES 662 Sustainability) offers a translational experience around the unique definition of sustainability at UNC Greensboro, where academics, operational, and outreach are conducted with careful attention to the enduring interconnectedness of social equity, the environment, the economy, and aesthetics.
For information regarding deadlines and requirements for admission, please see the Guide to Graduate Admissions. Applicants need a baccalaureate degree in any field. Eighteen (18) credit hours are required to earn this certificate.
*Up to 6 credits of courses from outside the Department of Geography, Environment, and Sustainability may be chosen in consultation with the advisor (these could include courses from Anthropology, Biology, Communication Studies, Community and Therapeutic Recreation, Economics, Education, Interior Architecture, Business, Sociology, or others.)
