Marine Sciences faculty participate in the University of Georgia Water Resources Certificate Program. There are numerous other certificate programs, including Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering Certificate, Environmental Education, Sustainablility, Environmental Ethics, and Geographic Information Science
The Undergraduate Certificate Program provides a common curriculum to meet the educational needs of the next generation of environmental scientists and managers. Many of the courses provide hands-on experiences in an outdoor setting to learn about water resources.
The purpose of the program is to train students to manage our scarce water resources for the maximum benefit of the world’s population, while at the same time preserving the ecologic integrity of our aquatic resources.
