A Water Resource Certificate prepares one for a career in areas of environmental science and or management.
For omplete information about this certificate, visit WATER RESOURCES AT UGA.
While earning a undergraduate or a graduate degree in a specific discipline, the Water Resources Faculty have developed a Certificate Program which provides incentives and structure in the water-related fields. This greater knowledge base and enhanced skill set will strengthen graduates’ credentials for professional employment and enable greater multidisciplinary communication among future water resource professionals.
The Undergraduate Certificate Program provides a common curriculum to meet the educational needs of the next generation of environmental scientists and managers. Many of the courses provide hands-on experiences in an outdoor setting to learn about water resources.
The purpose of the program is to train students to manage our scarce water resources for the maximum benefit of the world’s population, while at the same time preserving the ecologic integrity of our aquatic resources.
The establishment of a Graduate Water Resources Certificate Program is intended to provide incentives and structure for graduate students in water-related fields. While earning a graduate degree in a specific discipline related to water resources, students who sign up for the Graduate Water Resources Certificate will acquire an improved understanding of the biophysical, social, and institutional aspects of terrestrial and aquatic systems.
