Any Indiana University student enrolled in a bachelor's program (and in good academic standing) may pursue one (or more) of the certificates offered by the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. SPEA's multidisciplinary faculty and curricula address environmental, health, public policy, and management issues from a variety of perspectives.
- Students in good standing and enrolled in bachelor’s programs at Indiana University are eligible to apply for a certificate when meeting with a SPEA advisor (SPEA 240). Interested students must apply for a certificate before completing 15 credit hours of applicable course work.
- SPEA students cannot earn a certificate in the same area as their major.
- A grade point average of 2.0 or higher is required in all course work credited toward the certificate. (Note: Students applying for the Certificate in Arts Administration must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.7 or higher in order to be eligible to apply for the certificate, and must have a grade point of 2.0 or higher in all certificate course work.)
- The number of credits required for each certificate varies.
