This unique option distinguishes the Environmental Education Masters program at SOU from similar programs.
Certificate in Non-Profit Management
Many of us are drawn to nonprofit work due to a dream of helping others or the desire to advance a compelling cause. In today’s dynamic, competitive environment, passion alone is not enough to fulfill an organization’s promise. Instead, successful nonprofits employ management practices that have proven to be effective in many organizations. Southern Oregon University offers you the chance to learn and apply these practices while earning a certificate in nonprofit management.
Thesis or Project
A thesis or project allows you to establish demonstrable expertise in an area that will help you as you pursue your career. For example, a field biology research project (with environmental education implications) can lead to a PhD program in biology or environmental education or lead to a position in a community college.
