Ecological Economics is based on the understanding that the economy is grounded in a larger ecological system. It strives to create a future that is environmentally sustainable, socially equitable, and economically efficient.
Taught by leading experts in the field, the Ecological Economics Graduate Certificate is a 15-credit, problem-based interdisciplinary program for both graduate students and professionals. Participants gain a solid foundation in Ecological Economics and develop new skills to help you contribute to the big picture at your organization, in your research and throughout your career, including a theoretical and practical framework for integrating economic and ecological systems in real world scenarios.
The Ecological Economics Graduate Certificate is managed jointly by the Gund Institute and the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources. The certificate is conferred by UVM’s Graduate College.
