MS in Environmental Studies
The Graduate Program in Environmental Science (GPES) offers MS, M. P. S., and PhD degrees. GPES was created in the early 1970's as a unique response to the emerging institutional and analytical challenges of developing environmental problems. The program, which draws upon faculty from across the College, emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach to environmental understanding, problem solving and stewardship. It maintains a strong academic orientation, facilitating student and faculty engagement of fundamental environmental challenges such as resource utilization and sustainability, the uses and limits of scientific prediction and risk analysis, and a holistic concern for the health of the environment.
