The Kennedy School trains students to assess challenging problems involving the environment and natural resources, to design and evaluate policy responses, and to shape strategies for bringing about change.

To provide students with the skills to affect environmental policy, the School offers a variety of courses on environmental and natural resource topics aimed at both masters and doctoral students.  See the table below for a sampling of courses with significant environmental content. The underlying theme of the curriculum is to expose students to a range of disciplinary perspectives, including science, economics, politics, management, and law, within the context of environment, energy, and natural resource policy. Both masters and doctoral degrees are available.

The School also offers two-week executive training sessions in environmental policy for senior public and private sector individuals, including Understanding Environmental Economics and Infrastructure in a Market Economy.

The following table lists current Kennedy School courses with significant environmental content.  Course numbers that begin with the letters ENR denote courses that are part of the Kennedy School's core environmental curriculum.
