Program Mission, Goals and Description
The mission of the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (PBC) in Sustainability is to provide students with an interdisciplinary education in the three pillars of sustainability: people, planet and profit.
The goal of the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (PBC) in Sustainability is to provide coursework to train students in areas that focuses on the endurance of the environment and the associated human and economic implications.
Description: The sustainability of the earth’s environment is crucial to the survival of all living organisms, including our human, social, and economic systems. Because of the breadth of this topic, the curriculum will consist of three core courses that address the three pillars of sustainability (people, planet, and profit). Thus, the core will address the sociological, ecological and economic aspects of sustainability. In addition, students will choose two sustainability elective courses that focus on the natural sciences, social sciences, or economics.
This program is designed to provide a means for individuals with undergraduate degrees in either the natural sciences, social sciences, or business to gain a rounded understanding of the many issues concerning Sustainability. The program’s objectives are to present information from the three foundational pillars of sustainability: scientific, social and economic implications. Students can then chose to enhance their knowledge in one of the three specific fields as appropriate for their needs.
Individuals who have completed a baccalaureate degree are eligible to apply to the Post-Baccalaureate Sustainability Certificate program. This program will provide a foundation of the scientific, socially and economic aspect of sustainability and will allow the individual to enhance their knowledge of a more targeted component. Examples include those with business degrees who wish to learn more about the scientific nature of sustainability, or a natural scientist who would like to learn how the science impacts the human or economic aspect of sustainability. Candidates are encouraged to work closely with advisors so as to customize the most appropriate menu of course that will best meet the students' needs.
