International Environmental Conservation Undergraduate Certificate

This UA-sanctioned program allows you to develop international experience in field settings related to conservation biology and environmental conservation, and can be added to your transcripts and resume. It emphasizes:

--Cultural immersion

--Experiential learning

--Student engagement outside of the classroom

--Field experiences in remote international settings

--Hands-on learning while participating in international conservation

It requires 12 units of coursework that can also be used to satisfy Major or Minor requirements, including participation in one or more of our Study Abroad classes (see below), and 3 – 6 units of course work related to environmental science and natural resources.

Our Study Abroad Classes:

These Study Abroad programs offer an amazing opportunity to visit some of the least-visited places on the planet. Whereas many travel abroad experiences involve looking through a tour bus window, we offer a more intimate look at the cultures and natural history of Australia, Ecuador, and Namibia. Students participate in actual research related to conservation and environmental science, and these classes fulfill course requirements for a variety of majors. They can also be applied to obtain an undergraduate certificate in International Environmental Conservation. Honors credit is available on each program and all satisfy the Environmental Science degree capstone requirement.
