Environmental Planning and Management Program at Johns Hopkins University Overview

Rapid deterioration and consumption of our planets’ natural resources, immense waste production, environmental decline, and climate change are just some of the environmental issues threatening human health and the well-being of planet Earth.

This Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals program examines how environmental engineering and science affect real-world outcomes in public policy, decision-making, and the economy. Taking into account factors like modern technology, social constraints, and the availability of financial resources, experienced instructors, through the use of interactive learning tools and online course delivery, teach students how to plan, execute, and evaluate the most complex environmental projects of our time. Choose from optional focus areas that are of most interest to you.

Upon completing the degree program, you will:

  • Demonstrate a fundamental understanding of concepts and issues relevant to environmental sustainability and climate change
  • Solve quantitative problems and technical assessments relevant to environmental sustainability, climate change science, and green technologies
