Environmental Project Management
In this course, students will learn about project management concepts and gain practical experience applying basic project management skills. As a part of class assignments, students will work on selected projects while covering the entire project management process, from project initiation to close-out. These projects will cover a range of environmental and / or sustainability project management perspectives, including governmental, industry, and advocacy or non-profit organizations. By the end of the course, students should have a strong understanding of project management skills and terminology, and be able to successfully complete some requirements for project manager certification. They will also understand the similarities and differences in project management for environmental professionals. Please note that while this course will provide a foundation in project management, it will not cover all concepts and terminology in depth or provide the required work hours necessary for project manager certification.
