Abstract

The following Environmental Science and Policy Master’s Portfolio is a compilation of works completed individually and with peers in order to fulfill requirements for the Master of Science degree. These works demonstrate breadth, depth, and the interdisciplinary nature of the course of study. As an undergraduate student at Clark University I studied Environmental Science with a concentration in Earth Systems Science. I was interested in learning about the natural world and wanted to develop a deeper connection to it. Inevitably, I was exposed to courses that examined the causes and effects of global climate change and this topic became my passion. The Environmental Science and Policy program has provided an opportunity to shift my focus from deepening my understanding of the questions about how, and why the climate is changing, to advancing my knowledge of what should come next. As a whole, I have focused my efforts on environmental policy and how businesses can respond to environmental issues such as global climate change. The following describes the interdisciplinary works contained in this portfolio, the skills and learning outcomes achieved, and how the individual projects, papers, and reports connect coherently.
