Students who are interested in the environment and in learning how to impact the world around them positively, may want to consider completing the School of Environmental Design 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-degree students. Consult a School of Environmental Design academic advisor about how the required classes fit into academic and career plans. Most courses in this certificate program are offered during the daytime at the Ambler Campus; a few courses are available in the evening at Ambler.  In addition, some courses 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. At least one half of the courses required for the certificate must be completed at Temple University.

Note: The symbol (F) or (S) after the course number indicates that the class is offered ONLY in the semester indicated: (F) = offered only in fall semester; (S) = offered only in spring semester.
