  5. Columbia University’s Master of Public Administration in Environmental Science and Policy program. By integrating science with environmental policy and management, this program provides students the practical knowledge and training to become leaders in the rapidly growing area of sustainability. During this one-year program, students acquire the practical skills that are required of effective leaders: fostering and managing organizational innovation, optimizing group work and dealing with group conflict, managing the work of scientists, and communicating science to non-scientists. Graduates also understand the relationship of sustainability programs to organizational management and management to finance. Students who apply by January 15 are eligible for partial fellowships. BIPOC students who apply by this deadline will be considered for the Dean’s Fellowship – a full tuition grant and internship –and for numerous other partial fellowships. To learn more about this program, visit our website. There will be an information session Dec. 16; RSVP here.
