The EPML program can be taken as
either a stand-alone graduate certification program or as a concentration within
the school’s Master of Public Administration curriculum.
Understanding our environment requires an
understanding of relationships. In environmental science, it means
understanding relationships within ecosystems and how human behavior affects
them. In EPML, it means understanding how the environment is affected by
relationships between various entities, including:
federal, state, and local governments
government and the nonprofit and private sectors
government and the public it has been established
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.
Students interested in obtaining a concentration in EPML
within a Master of Public Administration (MPA) program must apply and enroll in
the MPA program within the School of Public Affairs (SPA) and must adhere to
all master degree program requirements.
