Enroll in courses this Fall in the CERC Certificate Program in Conservation and Environmental Sustainability.

CERC’s Executive Education program is structured to fit your busy schedule. Evening classes meet once a week for five weeks and are held from 6 to 8PM at Columbia University or online via the CERC Distance Learning platform. Take individual courses or pursue the full Certificate, which can be completed in as little as 9 months.

This program integrates web-based learning with direct student-to-student and faculty-to-student communication.
