The professional Science Master of Environmental Policy and Management (PSM-EPM) at FIU is an innovative program that allows students to pursue advanced training in environmental policy while developing highly valued management skills. Through innovative curriculum and an internship experience, the program emphasizes development of professional skills in environmental management, policy analysis, written and verbal communication, environmental journalism, climate impact in the environment, and environmental stewardship.

What is the PSM-EPM?

Offered by the Department of Earth and Environment, http://www.npsma.org/, PSM-EPM focuses on diverse areas of environmental policy and management, including conservation biology, water resource management, public land management, and environmental analysis using GIS and statistical methods. Students will have access to state-of-the-art labs and instrumentation through their participation in hands-on workshops taught by expert faculty. Students will also have opportunities to interact with established environmental policy and management practitioners through guest speakers, classroom visits and field visits. PSM-EPM is ideal for current practitioners interested in a career and leadership development, and for students looking to launch careers in private and public sectors, international organizations and non-governmental organizations.
