The graduate concentration in Environmental Policy, Management and Law is available as a concentration within the MPA program, or as a stand-alone certificate for non-degree students. This concentration, which requires 15 credit hours (5 courses), provides an understanding of how our natural environment is governed and affected by relationships between various entities, including:
- administrative agencies
- federal, state, and local governments
- government and the nonprofit and private sectors
- government and the public it has been established to serve
The core of the EPML program requires completion of two required graduate seminars, all taught by faculty who specialize in environmental affairs. Then students select three elective courses under faculty advisement.
