EPDM Joint Seal - What Would You Do?

I'm a handyman who was asked to seal a roof that currently has (what appears to be) EPDM. The roof is on a decommissioned school classroom that is built like a doublewide trailer (picture)


The roof has practically no pitch. I need an opinion as to how I can seal where the two parts of the building come together. Would you use EPDM and seal tape or something like Liberty Low Slope? If EPDM, what would you suggest as to how many inches you would come down the roof? I've Never worked with EPDM and don't want to be the "it will never leak" guy and it leak in six months time.
