Students, who are interested in the environment and in learning how to positively impact the world around them, may want to consider completing the new Ambler College credit Certificate in Environmental Sustainability.  This certificate provides students with the basic knowledge needed to evaluate environmental problems and to draw ecologically and economically sound connections between environmental needs, policy issues, and current research.

The certificate is available to all undergraduate degree students to complete as part of their studies, and it is also available to non-matriculated (non-degree) students. Consult an Ambler College academic advisor about how the required classes fit into your academic and career plans. Courses in this certificate program are offered during the daytime at the Ambler Campus; some are also available at the Main Campus.

This credit certificate may be conferred upon a student by recommendation of the faculty and upon satisfactory completion of the required credits with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0.
