The new Master of Science in Environmental Metrology & Policy program (EMAP) at Georgetown University, Washington DC is a joint endeavor between Georgetown, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
In this dynamic interdisciplinary program, the first of its kind in the nation, students learn to combine and apply new scientific and technical skills in policymaking settings. Integrated metrology and policymaking core courses prepare students to pursue sequential research-oriented courses and enrich their working knowledge further through electives in economics, government, ethics, and environmental data science. With access to state-of-the-art metrology instruments, students learn by working with leading scientists and policy makers.
The two-year program includes a 10-week program-funded summer internship at NIST and EPA. In addition, the after-work course schedule offers students the possibility of pursuing the program while working full- or part-time.
