Program Information

The Environmental Management Practices, Board of Governors’ Certificate online program explores uniquely Canadian problems within a global perspective. The student learns systems, processes, tools and strategies, risk management techniques and legal requirements for the assessment and management of air, water, land and waste. Throughout the program, the focus is on the need for sustainable development and market-driven solutions.

This program aims at exploring both theory and practice which allows students to gain an appreciation of the complexity of designing environmental strategies in the presence of diverse and competing stakeholder interests. Specific chosen case studies from environmental practice and stories taken from current newspaper articles will provide the lead-in for discussion.

The goal of the program is to produce environmental practitioners who can effectively implement and specifically, manage programs directed at limiting environmental impacts and restore degraded environments. The program provides an interdisciplinary approach to environmental management that includes management of air, land, water and waste.
