The certificate is designed to train students in environmental disciplines how to go beyond scientific journal publications to communicate relevant discoveries to society, including the press, the public, policy makers and other key stakeholders. Degree requirements total 15 credit hours, including a core course by the same name as the certificate (BIO 578) and 12 credit hours electives in policy and management, communication, leadership and an open elective.
