Marietta’s Land & Energy Management program is one of the few accredited programs in North America, and the only one at a small liberal arts college. Accreditation by the American Association of Professional Landmen allows our students to be eligible for national scholarships and enables successful graduates to earn three “credit years” toward the five-year work experience necessary to sit for the Registered Professional Landman certification exam.
