Certificate in Environmental Studies
School of Natural Resources
124 Anheuser-Busch Natural Resources Bldg.
The Environmental Studies Certificate is 15 credit hours minimum of coursework focused on environmental topics. It is available to all MU majors, but because the certificate's goal is to create a complementary educational experience, it is recommended that students select coursework outside of their major.
There are two tracks for the certificate: Natural Dimensions for non-science majors and Social Dimensions for science majors. In general, students with majors in Business, Humanities, Journalism, Social or Behavioral Sciences, Mathematics, or non-science Education majors will pursue the Natural Dimensions track, while students with majors in Natural Sciences, Engineering, or science Education will purse the Social Dimensions track.
- 6 hours of Natural or Social Dimension courses, which are listed below.
- 3 hours of ABM 2070W or NAT_R 2160
- 6 hours of upper level 2000+ environmental-focused courses. For course options, visit https://omd.missouri.edu/?q=env-st-cert/index.
- A minimum grade of C- is required for each course taken in the certificate. A minimum cumulative GPA in all certificate coursework is 2.0.
