Understanding our environment requires an understanding of relationships. In environmental science, it means understanding relationships within ecosystems, and how human behavior affects them. In Environmental Policy, Management, and Law (EPML), it means understanding how the environment is affected by relationships between various entities, including:
    * legislatures
    * administrative agencies
    * courts
    * federal, state, and local governments
    * government and the nonprofit and private sectors
    * government and the public it has been established to serve

The Environmental Policy, Management, and Law (EPML) program provides qualified applicants with just that understanding. Offered by the School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado Denver, the EPML program can be taken as either a stand-alone graduate certification program or as an emphasis area within the school’s Master of Public Administration curriculum.


The core of the EPML program requires completion of two of the three required graduate seminars, all taught by full-time core faculty who specialize in environmental affairs.  Then students select three elective courses under faculty advisement.
