The Global Environmental Policy M.A. degree is founded upon a tripartite course of study of natural science, economics, and policy analysis to build an integrated understanding of environmental politics and policy. During the course of their study, Global Environmental Policy students take a combination of theory, economics, science, and research methods courses, and design a concentration unique to their own interests. Students complete the program with a capstone research project, which can be completed individually or through a team practicum. Other non-credit requirements include demonstrating proficiency in a foreign language and fulfilling a professional experience requirement.
