Credits/Contacts Required: 30/31 CIP Code: 030299


In this certificate program, students will explore the dynamic relationship between humans and their environment from cultural, economic, historical, literary, social, scientific, and technology perspectives, as well as acquire foundation skills in communications and mathematics. Courses in this certificate will explore the unifying theme of sustainability from a multidisciplinary perspective preparing students to face the challenges of global citizenship in the twenty-first century. Sustainability represents hope for the future as we face the challenge of “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (as described in the American Association of Community Colleges’ Resolution in Support of Education for Sustainable Development, November, 2007). The Sustainability Certificate is a valuable addition to any AA, AS, or AAS degree. It will assist students to stand out from their peers in the competitive employment market. This certificate is especially valuable for students majoring in business, technology, education, natural resources, or any field at the forefront of the sustainability revolution.
