Graduate Certificate in Waste Management

A brief description of the graduate degree program (2nd program):

In keeping with the demand for trained professionals in the field of waste management, a new Graduate Certificate Program in Waste Management was launched in 2003. The program is designed for professionals working in the waste management industry who desire advanced knowledge in the field but do not have the time to enroll in a graduate degree program that may take up to two years to complete. The graduate certificate program is designed to meet this need and also to enable students holding a bachelor's degree in an appropriate discipline to improve their knowledge in the waste management field and to prepare them to enter industry with advanced knowledge at the graduate level. The carefully designed curriculum for this program consists of 15 credit hours of course work that covers every important aspect of waste management. Field visits to waste facilities and the 40-hour OSHA-approved Hazardous Waste Operator Training (HAZWOPER) course are included in the curriculum.
