MS in Environmental Studies
The Environmental Studies (ENST) Program opened its doors in the late 1960's and awarded its first degree in the early 1970's and is still going strong today. It represents a large and academically diverse inter-disciplinary graduate program for students wishing to obtain a Master of Science in Environmental Studies. The breadth and flexibility of the ENST Program has acted as a magnet for academically and professionally high-quality students.
Rather than conforming to a rigidly-defined curriculum, students are encouraged to craft a graduate study plan that meets both the core requirements of the ENST Program, and allows them to pursue courses in other departments that suit their own vocational or intellectual goals.
The Program has been able to draw on excellent instructors and mentors from an array of departments (e.g. biology, economics, geography, geology, history, sociology, and others), and on a pool of highly trained environmental professionals from local and regional government, as well as private environmental firms.
