New Programs for Law and Sustainability

posted in: Blog 0

The Law, Science, and Technology (LST) Program is the Pre-Law program for students at Georgia Tech interested in law school or interested more generally in law.  They are also an academic and programming hub for the exploration of issues at the intersection of law, science, and technology.  They offer both a Law, Science, and Technology Minor, and a Pre-Law Certificate for undergraduates.  They provide support to Georgia Tech’s nationally ranked Mock Trial Team, as well as advice to students interested in pursuing the minor or certificate, pursuing law school, or otherwise interested in law.  They also send a weekly newsletter with information about our program, events around campus, and pursuing a career in law, and they are inviting all interested students in law to subscribe by following the instructions here.

The School of Public Policy is also launching new Masters and Certificate Programs in Sustainable Energy and Environmental Management (MSEEM/CSEEM).  Led by Regents’ Professor Marilyn Brown, the MSEEM is the only graduate degree offered in Georgia focused on Sustainable Energy and Environmental Management, and it provides a unique integration of theory and practice, utilizing a number of guest lecturers from the community to help connect students for networking and job opportunities.  The program also builds on Georgia Tech’s strengths in teaching students to apply analytical skills to find effective solutions to sustainability problems.

The first class of MSEEM/CSEEM students will begin in the fall, with an upcoming application deadline of June 15.  The 1 year full-time program / 2 year part-time program is offered both on-campus and online, and it is flexible to meet a variety of students’ needs.  There is an information session on Monday, April 15, 2019 in the DM Smith Building, Room 108 for interested students.  Pizza will be served.  It’s also worth noting for students who are admitted and wish to attend as on-campus, full-time students, a number of fellowships are available that include a monthly stipend.
