American Public University is proud to offer its Graduate Certificate in Global Environmental Management. It’s facilitated entirely online, and designed to give working professionals the flexibility to fit a graduate-level certificate into their busy lives.
The innovative program was created to empower individuals seeking to understand the social, economic, and political impacts of environmental change and sustainability initiatives from a global leadership perspective. Students learn to research and offer sound analysis of key data presented on global change and its implications on national and international environmental policy.
This interdisciplinary program examines the complexities affecting sustainability practices with traditional boundaries in the natural and social sciences. The certificate also prepares students with fundamentals in emergency and disaster planning management.
The courses are taught by scholar-practitioners. Many have held leadership positions at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, the Nature Conservancy, and other key environmental organizations. Faculty members are actively involved with the changing laws, policies, scientific advancements, and the social and political influences that are shaping the future of global environmental management.
