About

The Grasslands Management graduate certificate, offered by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, is a 12 credit hour program designed for current and future grassland professionals--managers, advisers and conservationists--and others who want to increase their knowledge about the conservation, utilization and sustainability of managed grassland systems.

Overview

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Kansas State University, Iowa State University, and the University of Missouri (Columbia) have been collaborating on grasslands management distance education courses as part of the multi-institutional USDA-funded Higher Education Challenge grant. 

The overarching project goal of the grant is to establish a multi-state agricultural consortium to develop and deliver high-priority collaborative distance education program in the food and agricultural sciences.

The graduate certificate is designed to provide students a knowledge base in pasture and range management; vegetation analysis, root growth, and utilization; grassland and wetlands ecology; watershed management; fire ecology; grassland plants, insects and diseases; and basic research and educational programs in grasslands.
