A total of 17 semester hours are required for the certificate. ENS 2103 and ENS 4102 are required of all students, representing 5 credit hours. Of the remaining 12 hours, at least three hours must be taken from each of three categories: Humanities, Social Sciences, and Science & Engineering. The remaining 3 credit hours must be taken from a category not directly related to the student's major course of study.
Enrollment in ENS 4102 must be prearranged with the Program Coordinator. The student may arrange to work with a faculty member conducting research in the environment and sustainability field, or the student may propose a project of relevance to the certificate. This must be arranged in consultation with the Program Coordinator prior to enrolling in ENS 4102.
The Environment and Sustainability Certificate is open to all undergraduate students in good standing. Non-Mississippi State University graduates may also enroll in the certificate program. For additional information, please contact the Program Coordinator here.
Being multi-disciplinary in nature, the Environment and Sustainability Certificate is administered by Office of the Provost. A committee consisting of at least six faculty members from various departments across campus oversees the program’s structure and performance. The committee reports to the Associate Provost who will advise the Provost on matters pertaining to the program.
