The curriculum for the Environmental Planning and Management program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals examines how environmental engineering and science affect real-world outcomes in public policy, decision-making, and the economy. Taking into account factors like modern technology, social constraints, and the availability of financial resources, experienced instructors, through the use of interactive learning tools and online course delivery, teach students how to plan, execute, and evaluate the most complex environmental projects of our time.
Upon completing the degree program, students will:
Demonstrate a fundamental understanding of concepts and issues relevant to environmental sustainability and climate change; solve quantitative problems and technical assessments relevant to environmental sustainability, climate change science, and green technologies; critically analyze and review a range of pertinent literature, case studies, and documentaries.
Develop a core understanding of the key components of the major U.S. environmental laws and regulations, and how they affect organizations and individuals; describe responsibilities that managers have under those laws and regulations, and employ techniques to manage organizations, personnel, and external resources to meet such responsibilities.
Construct and/or critique an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Record of Decision (ROD) for an environmental project; apply tools of economic analysis, including benefit cost analysis to public sector policy or investment in environmental projects.
