100% Online Graduate Certificate in National Environmental Policy Act

When a highway is built, you may wonder why the shortest route between two points is not necessarily the passage chosen. Trace it to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA).

American Military University's online graduate certificate in the National Environmental Policy Act examines the laws, regulations, and policies that directly affect environmental programs and projects in the U.S. You will also get hands-on experience in preparing NEPA-compliant documents.

With AMU's National Environmental Policy Act graduate certificate, you'll be better prepared to:

  • Critically review proposed projects, environmental assessments, impact statements, and proposed activities.
  • Analyze the compliance process in NEPA and the Council on Environmental Quality Guidelines.
  • Evaluate NEPA case law and legal challenges.
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses, legal soundness, and adequacy in environmental impact documents.
  • Apply appropriate environmental assessment and environmental impact statement analytical methodologies.
  • Navigate the process to mitigate conflict in public participation.
  • Prepare environmental impact assessment documents.

As a student in this program, you will engage with expert faculty in a highly collaborative online classroom designed for adult learners.
