Our MS in Environmental Policy (MSEP) prepares the next generation of environmental and energy policy analysts and experts to understand and impact the complex socioeconomic and political processes that create environmental outcomes. Clarkson’s MSEP focuses on human dimensions within the broad context of underlying natural systems to provide a unique graduate experience in environmental management. Our graduates leave well-prepared for careers as policymakers and analysts and work nationally and internationally in government, non-profit and private sectors.

Recent Environmental Policy projects range from establishing a carbon-offset program through agroforestry in Africa and evaluating policies related to fracking in New York state, to establishing a governance structure for a municipality-scale emergency microgrid.

Clarkson University is an internationally ranked research university located in Potsdam, New York in the US. Approximately 4,300 undergraduate and graduate students are enrolled here across over 50 rigorous academic programs of study. Teaching is split across the School of Arts & Sciences, School of Business, Institute for a Sustainable Environment, Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering and the Clarkson School.



The school is named after Thomas S. Clarkson, a local entrepreneur who died accidentally in a nearby sandstone quarry, risking his own life in an attempt to save a worker. The Clarkson family were important benefactors to the area and Clarkson University was founded in 1896 by the sisters of Thomas, originally called the Thomas S. Clarkson Memorial School of Technology.



In addition to its reputation for great career outcomes, innovative solutions to real-world and theoretical problems at the nexus of science, engineering, technology and business, the university is also well-known for the performance of its women’s and men’s hockey teams.
