About The Program

You can only prevent hazardous environmental exposures that you can measure and assess their health risk. The mission of the Environmental Metrology & Policy Program (EMAP) at Georgetown is to offer students the best education and most rigorous professional training in an emerging interdisciplinary field as embodied by the EMAP’s cross-cutting curriculum. It integrates organically the environmental metrology, i.e., measuring chemical pollutants and assessing their health risk, with developing and implementing most appropriate environmental policies using best available science. It will lay a solid intellectual and technical foundation for students to become a new type of leaders or expert practitioners. Students will have possessed deep understanding of the intricacies in both environmental metrology and its critical role in developing and implementing all-encompassing environmental policies. As such, students will become a new genre of leaders who will shape future environmental policies and laws by relying on the best available science and weighing the best available metrology data to an evidence-based policy decision-making. Thus, EMAP graduates will be best equipped to become conscientious, dedicated and skillful stewards of the terrestrial environment for the betterment of the world.
