Sustainable Transportation Certificate

Certificate Description:

The predominant focus on automobile transportation has led to a variety of consequences that are less than sustainable such as urban sprawl, rising rates of obesity, growth in green house gas emissions, habitat degradation, dependence on fossil fuels, and equality concerns. The goal of this certificate is to provide students with the knowledge, literacy, skills and tools they need to develop plans for sustainable transportation.

The Sustainable Transportation graduate certificate teaches methods for achieving a more sustainable transportation system and how that system fits into efforts to improve community design and the livability of urban areas.
