2021 Annual ES Retreat Highlights Student Research and Career Opportunities
The Environmental Science Program offers the Environmental Restoration certificate for graduate students who wish to pursue an environmental restoration position upon graduation, professionals looking to increase their knowledge base
and anyone considering becoming a Certified Ecological Restoration Practitioner (CERP). The Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) administers the CERP program, which covers a rigorous assessment of academic credentials, including courses in ecological restoration, biological science, physical science, resource management and conservation, and quantitative science. FAU's Environmental Restoration certificate can help students fulfill those requirements by bolstering their credentials in the assessed disciplines by drawing upon courses from environmental science, geosciences, biology, chemistry, urban and regional planning, and civil engineering. Students interested in SER's professional certification should consult with an Environmental Science program advisor to review their academic credentials and tailor their Environmental Restoration certificate plan of study to maximize the certificate's benefits to their academic credentials.
The certificate consists of a minimum of 18 credits, including two core courses, and four electives are chosen from a minimum of three of the four elective focal areas. All courses must be completed with a grade of “C” or better to be counted toward the certificate.
