Certificate in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy (STEP)

The STEP certificate program encourages students to acquire a sophisticated understanding of key issues in the field of science and policy. Students work closely with distinguished STEP faculty to integrate their science and policy interests. Faculty interests are broad and far-reaching, including:

  • the problems of global climate change;
  • global and regional air pollution;
  • negotiated environmental accords, ecology, ecosystems and biodiversity;
  • the ethics of biotechnology;
  • health, population and disease;
  • artificial intelligence;
  • information technology;
  • cyber, science and global security;
  • and the use of science-based modeling for policy analysis.
