All environmental science graduate students complete three core courses: Environmental ProSeminar (ENV 701), Environmental Problem Solving (ENV 702), and Environmental Law and Policy Seminar (ENV 703). Students develop their degree programs in consultation with their faculty advisors. Other course work in support of a student's specialization generally includes courses from several departments and student research often crosses disciplinary lines. The PhD degree requires 72 credits, including a minimum of 18 credits of dissertation development and writing (ENV 797 and 798) and successful defense of the dissertation.
