About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
To apply our knowledge about climate change and public opinion on the issue, learners will engage in "climate conversations" with a friend, family member, co-worker, or neighbor. We'll also assemble infographics to explain how policy action can effectively address climate risks. At the end of the specialization, we'll reflect on these projects and how they might spark climate actions happening in our households, communities, and workplaces.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
