The Graduate School of Global Environmental Studies (GSGES) has established the International Environmental Management Program to strengthen educational and research opportunities for international students. GSGES offers a Doctoral Program in Global Environmental Studies for students interested in pursuing environmental research and academic study, and Master’s and Doctoral Programs in Environmental Management for students interested in applied environmental management from the local to global levels. Students who join the International Program will be enrolled in one of these three degree programs.

GSGES features a multidisciplinary program, with faculty drawn from a variety of disciplines, including engineering, agriculture, economics, law and social sciences. It provides practical education on environmental issues through long-term internships, fieldwork and lecture- and discussion-based courses for thesis preparation.
