The Environmental Law and Policy Studies (ELPS) course examines how US environmental and sustainability policies are made, who and what influences their creation, and the scope and breadth of the field. ELPS introduces students to the players and institutions that shape environmental decision-making on the major issues of our time including climate change, energy sustainability, manufacturing, architecture, urban planning, endangered species, the oceans, and many others. ELPS also critically analyzes the convergence of US environmental policy with the challenges and realities of geopolitics. This course enables students to see firsthand the intersection between environmental decision-making and the rapidly changing world of scientific discovery and domestic and international politics.
This intensive core course combined with a substantive, hands-on internship prepares students for active citizenship, public service, and leadership in this growing and vital field.
This is a seminar style class which will meet once a week for 3 hours at the offices of the Washington Internship Institute. Classes begin the week of January 20 and run through the week of April 28.
Preferred qualifications include an earned Ph.D. in Environmental Studies or Environmental Law or equivalent experience in environmental policy and/or advocacy. Experience working with undergraduate students is required.
