Two certificate programs in DE: Sustainability Certificate, 2017-Sustainability is a problem-based, solution-oriented framework for creating a resilient civilization. Mitigation and adaptation to climate change is emphasized along with biodiversity conservation, resource conservation, and mitigation of pollution. Students within this certificate should expect to explore, debate, and research possible sustainability solutions from a variety of viewpoints. Certificate in Environmental Geographic Information Science (GIScience), 2017-Environmental scientists can analyze and interpret environmental data while Geographic Information Systems (GIS) scientists can manage and manipulate data. Unity College’s Environmental GIScience Certificate will prepare students to meld the two by integrating spatial technologies and environmental information. Hands-on experience through online projects and research will engage students in course activities and allow for increased comprehension of the science, concepts, and skills they need to become leaders in their chosen environmental fields.
