About

Students enrolled in the Master in Environmental Management (with concentration in Environmental Economics and Policy) program at Duke University learn to inform effective solutions for today’s national and international environmental problems by analyzing how households, businesses, governments and other stakeholders react to existing and proposed environmental and resource policies.

Vision

Our highly analytical program provides training in the social and natural sciences for future policymakers, those who offer them expert advice, and those who try to influence policy through the political process.
