Graduate Certificate in Environmental Geology

The Department of Geology in collaboration with the KU Edwards Campus now offers an online graduate certificate in environmental geology.  The certificate consists of 14 credit hours and coursework is completed online, with the exception of the required 1-credit-hour field techniques course, offered on-site at the Edwards or Lawrence campuses (or at a regional location), one per semester, on 1-2 weekdays or a weekend.

The certificate is a subset of the graduate science courses from the Professional Science Masters in Environmental Geology (PSM-EG) degree program. The graduate certificate can be completed as a stand-alone graduate certificate; as a graduate certificate paired with an appropriate graduate degree that the student is simultaneously enrolled in; or as a precursor to starting the full PSM-EG program.
