MSCI 687 - Environmental Policy

Fall (3) Hicks

This course will explore policy making for environmental problems and will focus on issues that are local, national, and international. The course will primarily focus on national environmental policy, and the procedures by which policy is implemented at both local and regional levels. Issues explored will include water pollution policy and land-use in the Chesapeake Bay, U.S. Marine Mammal Policy, and U.S. water and air quality regulations. For each of these issues, U.S. laws and regulations as well as federal agencies’ approaches for quantitatively assessing the benefits and costs of environmental policy will be examined.
