The John S. Watson School of Public Service and Continuing Studies offers areas of study under the Master of Science in Management (MSM) focusing on issues of management and public service. Public Service programs offered under the MSM provide an evidence-based, inquiry-based approach to problem solving that enable students to address and identify solutions to real-world challenges and work with leaders in their respective fields.

The Environmental Policy/Environmental Justice area of study prepares graduates for positions in both the private and public sectors, particularly as the government’s regulatory functions that deal with current environmental crises.

Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the primary issues in both the environmental and environmental justice fields.
  • Compare and contrast the views of environmentalists and environmental justice advocates on the same issue.
  • Evaluate how these potentially divergent viewpoints might lead to different policy solutions
