Earn Your 100% Online Certificate in Environmental Planning and Design

Our University is committed to providing specialized graduate-level education to meet the critical needs of the environmental industry. We are proud to offer the Graduate Certificate in Environmental Planning and Design entirely online.

This unique program was designed to teach students the elements that are necessary to design, evaluate, and implement actionable strategies that adhere to professional environmental planning and sustainability principles. Students research and assess the complex correlations between humans, natural resource usage, and its resulting impact on the environment.

The program explains the role of government at the local, regional, national, and international levels in relation to environmental planning. Students examine core disciplines such as hazard mitigation, sustainable design, geographic information systems, and spatial analysis to resolve complex issues that often are a result of competing development plans and priorities.

The courses are taught by expert instructors, many who are leaders that draw upon their experience managing environmental planning projects in government agencies or private organizations. American Public University designed this specialized online certificate to give working adults the opportunity to fit a quality, graduate-level education into their busy lives.
