The program was originally designed by members of the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins, in conjunction with experts in applied science at regional and federal institutes and agencies.
To earn the degree, you’ll complete 10 courses, including the capstone project—an opportunity to make an impact addressing real-world energy or climate issue. In the capstone project, you’ll bring together the science, technological, law and policy knowledge learned during your coursework to create a final product and presentation to the environmental policy and climate community.
