Green Chemistry and Chemical Stewardship Online Certificate Program

The University of Washington offers a Green Chemistry and Chemical Stewardship Online Certificate Program. The program is in it’s third year, and enrollment just opened for the 2018-2019 program, which will kick off in September 2018 and run through June 2019.

This program is entirely online, and consists of three courses intended to give graduates the tools to make a difference and find success by learning to design safer chemicals and industrial processes.

As you know, businesses are facing increasing market and regulatory pressures to use less toxic chemicals in their manufacturing processes and products, and are in need of professionals who can provide innovative solutions and more sustainable substitutes. “This is the only program in the nation that takes green chemistry, toxicology, and business and puts them together to develop models and tools to make change in industry,” says course instructor, Dr. Grace Lasker.

We tapped the minds of top thinkers, doers, and leaders in the field to review content, guide design, and recommend updates to ensure this program offers the the highest quality learning experience and most up-to-date information.

If you would like to learn more about this certificate program, join one of the course instructors for a complimentary online information session!  There are three opportunities in the coming months to speak with the team of instructors and discover if this program is right for you and your career goals.

Graduate Natalie O’Niel says, “In this program students learn how to determine human and environmental hazards of chemicals, which gives them the tools to choose safer chemicals for their universities or companies. The assignments were personalize to each student’s situation which allowed for real application of the topics at hand and gave students the ability to utilize the information after the assignment was complete.”
