Graduate Certificate in Environmental Law & Policy
This graduate certificate offers a credential in environmental law and policy for individuals with a background in various science, engineering, social science and humanities fields who wish to understand the theory and practice of environmental and natural resource law at the national, comparative or international level. It is especially valuable for those in environmental fields who come in contact with the law in the course of their work, to policy makers at all levels of government who routinely handle legal affairs, to lawyers without specific training in environmental law, and to business people who want to know what the law says about the legality of their business’ impact on the natural environment. The certificate also can be preparation for further studies in law, policy, or politics or for professional positions in the private or public sector. Certificate courses can be counted toward the MA Degree in Environmental Policy Design, as appropriate.
