The Graduate Certificate in Watershed Studies and Management offers graduate students working in a relevant disciplinary area an opportunity to receive special recognition for interdisciplinary work related to watersheds. At present, participating departments include Biological Sciences, Geological Sciences, and Geography. Students will work closely with the core faculty involved with the Center for Integrated Watershed Studies (CIWS) as well as members of faculty in their own departments (as applicable).
The purpose of the certificate is for those participating to achieve:
The certificate will provide graduate students experience in interdisciplinary, watershed-related work, while at the same time, developing their own disciplinary expertise.
The certificate application deadline is rolling.
Applicants must submit the Graduate School's required admission materials:
Important note: Funding is not available to non-degree students completing certificate programs. Certificate students are not automatically admitted to master's or doctoral programs. They must meet the admissions requirements of those degree programs and be accepted. Students may concurrently apply for a certificate and a Binghamton University graduate degree program. However, a student cannot be awarded a certificate twice, nor can a student apply work for one certificate to a different certificate. Learn more about graduate certificate programs.
Applicants must be enrolled in a graduate program at Binghamton University.
