The minor in Applied Environmental Policy Analysis will provide students with a rigorous and in-depth study of the public sector environment, practice, and methods for analyzing and developing policy. Each course will also have the environment as a focus in the material, exams, and assignments. At the end of the minor students will be able to recall and explain the basic rationales for public policies; be able to apply rigorous research methods for evaluating policy; and be able to integrate the elements of theory, methods, problem structuring, ethics, analysis and argumentation to generate reports useable in government and nonprofit management. The minor is appropriate for practicing professionals and current undergraduate students interested in expanding their applied evaluation skills and environmental policy expertise.
