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 in online or online-hybrid mode, with the exception of the required 1-credit-hour field techniques workshop course, which is offered in-person. The field course typically meets on a Saturday on the Edwards or Lawrence Campus and is supplemented with online material.

The certificate courses are a subset of the graduate science courses taught in 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.
