Environmental Policy, Management, and Law (EPML) Program

Graduate Certificate Program

Understanding The Public Environment

Understanding our environment requires an understanding of relationships. In environmental science, it means understanding relationships within ecosystems, and how human behavior affects them. In Environmental Policy, Management, and Law (EPML), it means understanding how the environment is affected by relationships between various entities, including:

  • legislatures
  • administrative agencies
  • courts
  • federal, state, and local governments
  • government and the nonprofit and private sectors
  • government and the public it has been established to serve

The Certificate Program in Environmental Policy, Management, and Law (EPML) provides qualified applicants with just that understanding. Offered by the School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado Denver, the EPML program can be taken as either a stand-alone graduate certification program or as an emphasis area within the school’s Master of Public Administration curriculum. To complete the Graduate Certificate Program in EPML students are required to complete five courses within the EPML program.

For students from the public and private sectors

Some students in the EPML program already work in an environmental agency or private sector firm subject to environmental regulation. Those without public sector work experience serve an internship in an environmental agency or related nonprofit organization at the local, state, federal, or international level.
