The University of Georgia

Undergraduate Classes

The Undergraduate Certificate program is made up of six categories.
Students only need to fulfill FIVE of the six categories listed below:

UG1 = 1. Water Resource Foundations
UG2: = 2. Water Quality Foundations
UG3: = 3. Hydrologic Processes
UG4: = 4. Biological Interactions
UG5: = 5. Management, Economics, and Policy
UG6: = 6. Applications

The second requirement is the completion of six water resources seminars. Attendance at each seminar must be documented by providing a one-paragraph summary of the presentation via email to Jenny Yearwood. A list of current Water Resources Seminars can be found at our calendar. A maximum of three (of the six) seminars can be taken online at Cyberseminars.
