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 to serve
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.
