The 2020 climate science and policy cohort

Climate Science & Policy MAS Capstone Symposium 2020

On June 11th, the Master of Advanced Studies Climate Science & Policy Program (CSP) 2020 graduate cohort presented their capstone projects through a virtual symposium. This year’s ten capstone projects centered on sea-level rise, public health and vulnerability, commerce and carbon reduction, and climate change science communication.

CCCIA director Mark Merrifield serves as one of two directors of the program, which focuses on exploring interdisciplinary climate change problems through science, policy, and communication. CCCIA staff, researchers, and affiliated researchers also provided their expertise and experience by acting as committee members for the capstone projects.

The center is proud to be actively involved in the CSP program, and we look forward to seeing the students continue to engage in climate change action after graduation.
