Environmental Ethics Certificate

The Undergraduate Environmental Ethics Certificate Program trains students to make decisions about environmental problems that involve competing values. Students benefit from viewing environmental issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. The undergraduate program, established in 1994, parallels the graduate program, which began in 1983. The certificate program was the first of its type in the United States.  The Undergraduate Certificate is awarded to undergraduate students who successfully complete at least 18 hours of undergraduate course work, including at least 7 credit hours in core courses (one 3–or 4–hour course in ecology, one 3–hour course in ethics, and one 1–hour course in environmental ethics seminar), 7 or 8 hours in approved elective courses, and 3 hours for an approved research paper in environmental ethics.  To be eligible for admission to the program, an undergraduate student must have completed at least two semesters of full–time enrollment (must be a rising second–year student).   For more information, email eecp@uga.eduor visit the website at http://www.uga-eecp.com/students_undergrad.php


Global Health Certificate

The Undergraduate Certificate in Global Health will provide students with a better understanding of the concept of “global health” and how by its nature, it holds significant health implications for all individuals.  Global Health has become a major area of interest in public health and the broader implications have become a major multidisciplinary area of interest. The process of globalization has increased our global interdependency and simultaneously has created the awareness of global issues, especially global health issues.
