The Master in Environmental Science and Policy is designed to expand students’ understanding of the natural, social and physical dimensions of environmental issues. Students work with faculty members in areas such as forest ecosystems, hydrology, climate change, environmental economics, and land use planning to learn about the relationship between science and policy.

Our multidisciplinary approach helps students develop the ability to think analytically and creatively about environmental issues in order to understand the scientific basis of environmental problems, as well as the social, political and economic factors that shape appropriate management and policy responses.

The program is intended to be flexible to meet the varied needs of individual students. Although most students are full time, our program is designed to accommodate part-time students and students interested in taking courses for professional development. Up to 12 credits can be taken without matriculating in the program. Depending on availability, full-time graduate students may be eligible to receive graduate assistantships, which include a stipend and tuition benefits. Contact the program coordinator for more information about funding opportunities.... [-]

The Master of Science in Environmental Science and Policy is a springboard to leadership for environmental professionals. The program gives students a powerful understanding of where the sciences overlap and inform policy while providing insight into how policy is implemented and affects environmental outcomes. The program was designed by academic leaders in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins, in conjunction with experts in applied science at regional and federal institutes and agencies. The focus is on studying the environmental effects of current use on the creation, updating, regulating, communicating and enforcing of environmental policy.

The core curriculum provides the strong foundation of fundamental environmental science and policy required to work at the forefront of the field. A broad range of electives provides curricular flexibility to allow students to tailor their academic experience to suit personal needs and interests.... [-]

MSc in Environmental Science

Habitat loss, global climate change, water and air pollution, ozone depletion, loss of biodiversity, and the accumulation of toxic wastes are outcomes of human behaviors that stem from a general belief that the environment is infinitely renewable. It is not.

Environmental scientists must understand the complexity of problems that pit environmental limits against economic development, diverse cultures, ethics, values, and social stability. They must use integrated and holistic approaches to find solutions to these problems.

Admission requirements

Admission to the program will be granted to qualified graduates who hold a bachelor’s degree in environmental science, biological sciences, or a related field of study. The admission decision is based upon:... [-]

Having a healthy and safe environment to live is a right of every living human being and an increasingly pressing issue of social justice. Therefore, if you were, are or will be inspired by Rachel Carson's once world-saving book Silent Spring and aspired to follow her footsteps in contributing to making the environment in which we live healthier and safer, then the Environmental Metrology (metrology is measurements science, not meteorology or metallurgy) and Policy (EMAP) Program at Georgetown University is a perfect fit for your graduate education and professional training.

The EMAP is a unique joint program between Georgetown University, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).... [-]

Our distance MSES program is the only one of its kind in the nation, designed to help working professionals develop expertise in environmental issues and put that learning to work in their own communities.

At Green Mountain College, we’ve focused on teaching about the environment for two decades. Our distance MSES program, fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools & Colleges(NEASC), is one of the only of its kind in the nation and is designed to help working professionals develop expertise in environmental issues, then put it to work in their own communities.

Unlike other graduate programs, the GMC master’s degree combines the best of online learning with intensive locally applied experience. We call it a bioregional approach to distance education. Rather than learning about environmental studies solely through examples in a textbook, students in each of our courses use their local ecosystems as laboratories in which to experiment with new concepts and skills....
