The MPS in Environmental Leadership, Justice, and Communication is a 30 credit-hour experience focused on developing analytical capacities and problem-solving skills for environmental professionals, community leaders, decision makers, and advocates. The MPS is fully online and is designed to be accessible to working professionals and other non-traditional students.

The curriculum can be completed in as short as one year or over a longer period of time, depending on how many courses a student takes per semester. To earn the MPS, students complete three stand-alone advanced graduate certificates, each composed of three 3-credit courses: in Environmental Leadership (9 credits); Environmental Justice & Inequality (9 credits), and Science and Environmental Communication & Public Relations (9 credits). In their final semester, students participate in a 3-credit applied capstone project oriented towards their professional and/or civic objectives.
