E3Bís Environmental Policy Certificate (EPC) provides graduate students with a strong framework for understanding, developing and implementing conservation law. As a department of scientists, we recognize the importance that our graduates understand the real-world legal boundaries of the ecosystems they are trying to protect.
To attain the EPC, graduate students will design a flexible 6-course (24-credit) curriculum that bests suits their personal needs and interests. Graduate students will work with their advisors to create a program that best enhances their critical thinking and problem-solving skills as they apply to environmental policy.
E3B Ph.D. students are strongly encouraged (but not required) to complete the EPC. Students from other departments are welcome to apply for the EPC certificate and may complete it, pending E3B departmental approval. (Note: E3B will accept up to 6 credits from another university toward the EPC.)
