CERTIFICATES AT WAIE
The Environmental Studies Certificate is for those who want a unique opportunity to broaden their studies through interdisciplinary course work related to the environment. Young scholars learn about society’s environmental challenges; study environmental science, policy, literature, art and philosophy; and take part in environmental research and fieldwork.
NOTE: WAIE is currently in the process of completing accreditation review for curriculum and will be completed before the first graduation of our young scholars.
What are the learning outcomes?
The Environmental Studies certificate is part of our core certificates in the Diploma+ program. The certificate has three main learning outcomes for our young scholars.
- Understanding of how to become a global steward of our planet.
- Explore the interplay between the environment and the human dimension.
- Develop sustainable practices for food, agriculture, and global energy systems.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
