Climate change and associated issues such as biodiversity loss and air pollution are among the greatest and most urgent issues facing humans today.

The new Graduate Certificate in Science and Policy of Climate Change integrates the most up-to-date science and policy innovations to give you the critical knowledge, interdisciplinary education, and practical skills, to empower you to identify climate challenges and solutions and act on them.

This certificate consists of three 3-credit courses delivered entirely online and can be completed in less than a year. You’ll be introduced to the leading-edge science and the wide-ranging impacts of climate change, climate policy innovations, and governance from local to global levels. You’ll carry out an experiential, hands-on project to address climate change in an organization such as an Indigenous group, NGO, industry group or government at any level.

You can complete the certificate as a stand-alone credential, or you may take individual courses as electives for the MA in Environmental Practice and MSc in Environmental Practice; MA in Environmental Education and Communication; MA in Environment and Management, and MSc in Environment and Management at Royal Roads. This certificate is offered as part of the partnership between Royal Roads University and ECO Canada, the Environmental Careers Organization of Canada. Learn more...
