Students are required to take a minimum of 17 credit hours to earn the Sustainability Certificate. The requirements consist of an Anchor course, one course from each of three “spheres” (Ecological, Economic, Social), two semesters of the Seminar, a Capstone, and a Portfolio
We require that at least one of the spheres come from courses outside your major and highly recommended that two of the three spheres come from courses outside of your major to develop the broadest perspective on sustainability.

Students must be in good standing with the university at the time of application and will be notified by email when they have been accepted into the program.
Now you can meet with the certificate director, who will help you decide which courses you should take in the next semester.

When you Apply to Graduate in Athena - you must apply to Graduate with the Sustainability Certificate. This will be done the semester you graduate - do NOT forget. Here is what you will do when the time comes:
Log onto Athena: athena.uga.edu
Click: Student > Apply to Graduate > Follow the Directions to add the Sustainability Certificate
The main differences between the Grad and Undergrad certificate are:
- Graduate thesis, dissertation, or practicum (depending on the program) can be combined with the Sustainability Certificate capstone.
- Graduate students can substitute one semester of the seminar with an equivalent graduate student seminar.
If these were taken at a graduate level, then yes.
