The course content and applied assignments in the Graduate Certificate in Conservation Actions with Lands, Animals, and People, seek to integrate a holistic approach for sustainable practices with lands, animals, and people in private and public sectors using history, philosophy, policy, management techniques, leadership, education, and communications to improve environmental management, human interactions, and social/environmental justice.

Students gain critical insights into issues, uses, and management of natural resources. Students also gain an understanding and develop skills to review situations and viewpoints that impact public and private debate, and use assignments that may influence decisions in conservation. Upon completion of this certificate, students have the foundation to be stronger leaders, better communicators, and more active members of their communities.
