UC Berkeley Extension Professional Certificate in Green Chemistry

UC Berkeley Extension offers a Professional Certificate in The Essentials of Green Chemistry.

Green chemistry enables scientists and engineers to design chemicals and materials with minimal use and generation of hazardous substances. Growing public concern about product safety, along with new chemicals policies in the United States and the European Union, poses an imperative for decision makers in business, government, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to understand the business strategy and market drivers for green chemistry. In addition to new opportunities for growth and competitive advantage, businesses have new positions in green chemistry opening at points throughout the supply chain. Developed in association with the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, the Certificate Program in the Essentials of Green Chemistry trains professionals in chemistry, engineering, public policy, toxicology, and business so that they can work collaboratively with green chemistry colleagues in the U.S. and beyond. No matter what your schedule, Extension has flexible courses—including online, weekend, and evening options—to accommodate your work-life demands.
