Student Learning Outcomes


The Renewable Energy Assessment (REA) Minor and online undergraduate certificate is being revised to compliment the development of a graduate certificate in renewable energy assessment within the Master's of Environmental Assessment, a Delta-funded program. The undergraduate REA program requires 12 hours for the online certificate and 16 hours for the online minor. Required courses for the REA certificate and minor are ET 120 and ET 262. Electives for the REA program are ET 240, ET 255, and ET 220. The REA minor also requires ET 484, a one hour practicum. The revision of the program will keep the certificate at 12 hours and change the minor to 15 hours. The minor and certificate will add an elective course, ES 300 Energy and Environment (3 hrs), to meet the 15 hour and 12 hour requirement for the minor and certificate respectively. The REA minor will drop ET 484 (1 hr), Renewable Energy Assessment Practicum. This course could be offered only in the spring which often conflicted with students graduating in December and wanting to complete the REA minor. Most on campus students participating in the REA program already have direct experience through internships, and ET 484 duplicates that academic effort. There are also not sufficient funds to support instruction of this practicum lab as a face to face course.
