The Environmental Resource Policy (ENRP) Program at GW offers a multidisciplinary approach to environmental and sustainability studies. The Master of Arts program prepares students to enter environmental policy careers in government, non-profit organizations, the private sector, and environmental advocacy groups. ENRP is built on a multidisciplinary curriculum that includes environmental economics, environmental law, public policy, research methods, and a two-semester environmental science course. ENRP blends theory and practical experience with a professional, client-oriented, capstone project, academic credit for relevant internships and research, and a wide range of DC-based internship opportunities.
The MA and Graduate Certificate in Environmental Resource Policy are STEM-designated programs.

This overview of central concepts in environmental resource policy provides a focused experience to prepare you for or help you advance your career in the field. Some students seek this graduate certificate as a way to learn more without committing to a masters degree program. Other students begin in the certificate program and use it to launch into an MA in environmental resource policy or and MPP with an environmental policy concentration.
