Environmental Ethics Certificate Program

Environmental Ethics

The Environmental Ethics Certificate Program (EECP) is an interdisciplinary program that prepares students to synthesize ideas from a wide variety of perspectives to solve complex environmental problems, both in theory and in practice.

The EECP is an 18-hour program that requires one core course in ecology, one core course in ethics, a one-hour environmental ethics seminar course, and at least seven hours of approved environmental ethics elective courses.  In addition, students complete an environmental ethics research paper that demonstrates their ability to analyze the ethical underpinnings of environmental issues. Certificate holders are expected to apply their experience as they complete their major field of study and become leaders in their chosen profession.

Started in 1983, the EECP was the first environmental ethics certificate program established in the United States.  The certificate is offered at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
