The Penn LPS Online Certificate in Climate Change equips you with an in-depth understanding of Earth’s climate system and the skills and knowledge to effectively communicate the consequences of a changing environment.
Climate change represents one of the most controversial and least understood threats to human, economic, and environmental well-being on a global scale, requiring a new skill set to find and develop appropriate solutions.
A changing climate is impacting businesses and communities worldwide, requiring a nuanced understanding of the challenges faced. You will acquire skills to understand, prepare, and mitigate the consequences of environmental changes.
Coursework focuses on developing your communication skills to more effectively share an understanding of climate change and its relevant policy implications with a broad audience.
The online courses are scheduled at times to accommodate working adults, so you can easily enhance your scientific knowledge base while still pursuing your career.
