Environmental Policy and Management
The Environmental Policy and Management Program combines a background in scientific preparation with training in diverse social science, management, and professional disciplines. A focus of this program will be interdisciplinary training on the roles of science that is directly relevant to real-world environmental policy and management issues. The program is designed so students have a more formal preparation in bridging the differences between scientific academic background and policy and management work, with emphasis on communicating technical information in various management and policy contexts. Students will develop problem-solving skills involving analysis, communication, and negotiation that are needed in policy-making and management positions.
