About the Guide

Are you passionate about environmental issues and worried about the future of our global climate? Do you spend time reading about the causes and potential impact of climate change? 

With a wide variety of environmental degrees available, allow us to put two more on your list: a Master's in Environmental Policy and a Master’s in Climate Science

Bard CEP’s Degree Programs stand out from the pack for three reasons:

  • Unique interdisciplinary integration of science, economics, politics, and law, centering environmental and climate justice in policy through stakeholder engagement.
  • Full-time, six-month, high-level professional internships built into the program. Students intern in Europe, Africa, Asia, South, and Central America, New York, D.C., and across the U.S.
  • Required January term study in Oaxaca Mexico, with a focus on sustainable development.

To help guide your thinking about careers in environmental policy and climate science and policy, this resource will provide examples of career directions, share student stories, and give you actionable ways to move toward your environmental career today.
