Program Details

The University of Florida’s Graduate Certificate in Environmental Policy and Management is administered through the College of Engineering, and under the university’s EDGE Department. The Certificate in Environmental Policy and Management emphasizes economic, technologic, scientific, legal, political, and social dimensions of environmental policy formation, implementation, and environmental and natural resource management. This program’s distance learning delivery was designed with working engineering professionals in mind who wouldn’t normally have the freedom to pursue a traditional certificate on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments.

This program’s curriculum consists of four required courses, counting for 12 credit hours total, and a fifth course that the student chooses based on their personal interests and professional goals. This brings the total credit hour requirement for the Certificate in Environmental Policy and Management to 15. Additionally, students may begin the coursework in any semester, allowing for a great deal of freedom to tailor their education around their current commitments. The course topics vary depending on the semester, but some of the topics for the required courses are related to Environmental Policy, Environmental Institutions and Regulations, Ecological Engineering, and Restoration Planning. Elective courses span topics such as Water Quality Analysis, Wetland Treatment Systems, Biological Wastewater Treatment, and Green Engineering Design and Sustainability. Upon successful completion of this course of study, students may be equipped with a competitive edge to succeed in this field.


Students must have a BS degree in Engineering, with minimum undergraduate GPA 3.0
