Sustainability Graduate Certificates
The Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability (SDSS) sustainability graduate certificates provide a platform for current graduate students across the University to engage with and learn about sustainability topics outside of their primary course of study. Taking courses toward a certificate will help students begin making connections between sustainability concepts and their primary degree. The primary audience are masters- and PhD- students without background in sustainability, but with an interest in learning more.
