Given the growing number of courses relevant to this Certificate at USC, students may petition the Director to include courses not listed here. Petitions must be received and approved prior to registration for the course to be applied to the certificate.
Students may also earn credit toward the certificate electives with up to 4 units of Independent Study (e.g., Marshall 592 or 593) or Directed Research (590 in non-Marshall departments) subject to approval by the faculty directors.
For current USC graduate students, courses credited to the Graduate Certificate in Sustainability and Business may be completed in conjunction with course work required for the program in which the student is already enrolled. Applicability of these courses to the student's primary degree program is determined by the student's home department. For USC alumni, courses completed in conjunction with a previously conferred degree may not be credited toward the certificate.
Successful completion of the program is acknowledged by a certificate (diploma) awarded by the university.
