Students enhance their knowledge of conservation-related disciplines such as political science, ecology, urban and regional planning, and environmental engineering by registering for up to six credit hours of course work in other colleges at the University of Florida. Students can select courses from, but not limited to:
- The School of Natural Resources and the Environment
- The School of Forest Resources and Conservation
- The Environmental Engineering Department
- The Department of Urban & Regional Planning
Internationally focused interdisciplinary work is possible through the Tropical Conservation and Development Program at the UF Center for Latin American Studies.
“As a recent recipient of UF Law’s Certificate in Environmental and Land Use Law, I have much to say in praise of the Program. One of the best things about the certificate program is the sense of community it inspires. As a certificate program student, I was provided with a unique opportunity to interact with many of the faculty members on a daily basis, both inside and outside the classroom. And I enjoyed the frequent contact I had with practitioners and other members of the environmental community.”
