Environmental Graduate Programs

Hopkins Is Shaping the Environment

Johns Hopkins offers multiple environmental graduate programs focused on understanding and shaping policy, while building necessary leadership qualities in students. These programs offer expertise from field practitioners and law makers at our Washington, DC Center at Dupont Circle and online.

Master of Science in Environmental Sciences and Policy

The MS in Environmental Science and Policy is a springboard to leadership for environmental professionals. The program gives students a powerful understanding of where the sciences overlap and inform policy while providing insight into how policy is implemented and affects environmental outcomes.

Master of Science in Energy Policy and Climate

The MS in Energy Policy and Climate will prepare the next generation of interdisciplinary professionals to address the imposing challenges posed by climate change for human institutions and ecosystems and the potentially transformative role of sustainable energy systems. Students develop a firm grasp of climate change science and the potential impacts of climate change in this century and beyond.

Master of Science in Geographic Information Systems

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) represent a technological breakthrough in organizing and displaying spatial information to promote better decision-making by scientists, public officials, and communities facing increasingly complex demands upon their available resources. The Master of Science in GIS is designed for students looking to enter this lucrative and exciting field. All courses are online.

Certificate in Geographic Information Systems

The Online Certificate in Geographic Information Systems equips students with the knowledge they need to pursue the new opportunities created by the expanding demand for spatial data and systems expertise. The five-course certificate program explores the principles and real-word applications of GIS in a convenient, fully online course format.

Dual Degree Master of Science in Environmental Sciences and Policy with Certificate in Geographic Information Systems

The use of Geographic Information Systems has become standard for many environmental professionals. At the same time, environmental work remains one of the most popular and powerful applications of GIS investigations. To enable students to better exploit the complementary nature of the fields, we have created this dual degree, enabling students to earn both the MS degree and the Graduate Certificate.
