The Geography Education Graduate Certificate Program is designed for secondary geography teachers and community college instructors. You can complete this program without interrupting your teaching career.
Three online courses are offered during the fall and spring, and the Summer course is online plus in the field in western Colorado. See the Courses & Requirements page for more details about when you can start the program.
The field portion of the Summer course takes place in western Colorado in early August. You will make your way to Grand Junction, CO, where you will spend two days studying water resource issues and urban geography. Then you will embark on a 3-day river trip on the Colorado River. The trip will end at the head of the Westwater Canyon in Utah.

“I was able to work full time as well as attend the online classes. The courses pertained exactly to what I was teaching at the time, so I was able to apply what I was learning in my own classroom. The credits I earned in the program will also allow me to apply for teaching jobs in a community college.
Finally, the summer field experience was very enticing. It gave us a chance to actually ‘do’ geography.”
