This is an interdisciplinary program of graduate coursework and research. Created in 1970, the program meets the needs of students looking for a broader academic experience than a traditional course of study can provide. The program gives students the flexibility to pursue coursework and research spanning several disciplines. Students' backgrounds run the gamut from business, humanities, and social sciences to physical and biological sciences and engineering.


This certificate program offers non-Environmental Studies majors the necessary multidisciplinary skills and global awareness needed to understand the broader impacts of personal consumer choices on the environment. The certificate will expose graduate students from many disciplines to the economic, societal, and environmental effects of consumer choice and enhance the graduate degree of the student by incorporating problem-solving and critical thinking skills into the certificate program.


Offered through the College of Arts and Sciences, this program supplements existing majors with an interdisciplinary study of the biophysical environment and the complex interactions between humans, other organisms, and the environment. The program is open to students in any major, but it is especially relevant for educators and those seeking environmentally related careers in government, business, law, and consulting firms.
