Environmental Sciences and Policy
Rooted in the Morton K. Blaustein Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, the Johns Hopkins MS in environmental sciences and policy program is taught by distinguished instructors with valuable experience in the academic, public, and corporate sectors. Many of our students are already employed in the environmental field but wish to enhance their training or move in new directions. Others are seeking to move into the arena of environmental science and policy, specifically.
The program offers a flexible curriculum that allows students to tailor their academic experience to suit their personal needs and interests. It’s an ideal introduction to relevant areas of science for students with little scientific background, and gives students a powerful understanding of where the sciences overlap, while providing insights into how policies affect the environment.
Through the Advanced Academic Programs (AAP), the Johns Hopkins University Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences offers flexible graduate degrees and certificate programs that respond to the unique educational requirements of working adults seeking to pursue their professional and personal development through academic exploration.
Onsite courses are offered in the evening and on Saturdays to fit your busy schedule. Courses are offered in the fall, spring, and summer terms.
AAP offers classes across four sites: Homewood campus in Baltimore, MD; Washington, D.C., Center near Dupont Circle; Montgomery County Campus in Rockville, MD; and online.
All programs are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
