On-Demand Science & Technology Policy Certificate Program for Individuals
Through the S&T Policy Academy’s Certificate program, you will take classes in:
Live Topical Classes for Individuals
Once a semester, the S&T Policy Academy offers a new topical class live. Students watch tutorial videos at their own pace and meet weekly to discuss the tutorial content and workshop the activities for each module.
Classes occur over the course of 4 weeks. The date and time for the weekly calls will be determined by students via vote, and you will have access to recordings of the live sessions in case you miss one.
Each of the options below requires a discovery call so I can better understand your needs and we can determine if we’re a good fit.
