River Studies and Leadership Certificate

Are you passionate about rivers? Want to turn that passion into a career in river management or advocacy? Northern Arizona University has partnered with the River Management Society to offer the River Studies and Leadership Certificate (RSLC). This certificate is designed to offer students who are inspired to join the next generation of river professionals a foundation of knowledge, skills and experience in river-based science, policy, conservation, education, and recreation. Check out this short video to learn more.

RSLC coursework is focused specifically on river systems, yet it is interdisciplinary in nature; students explore and study river systems in ways that integrate the life and earth sciences, policy and conservation, socio-cultural and economic factors, as well as education and recreation. Ultimately, the RSLC adds valued focus to a student’s degree and presents employment advantages through networking with the River Management Society. For complete details visit the River Management Society’s website: RMS RSLC and contact  NAU’s RSLC faculty advisor, Dr. Denielle Perry.
