Land Management Certificate


The one-year Land Management Certificate program prepares students for business careers in the petroleum & energy industries. The program educates students in determining land and mineral ownership, accurately preparing reports/records, and negotiating agreements with landowners, industry professionals, and third party participants. A cooperative work experience in an industry setting provides hands-on experience in performing land management responsibilities and prepares students to become a registered landman through the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL) association.
