The Antioch New England doctoral program in environmental studies offers a curriculum that addresses systems-based analyses and solutions for contemporary and future environmental problems, a delivery model that meets the needs of the experienced environmental professional, and an integrated emphasis on the ethical, moral, and leadership questions that surround environmental issues. The program meets the needs of a diverse group of environmental professionals. It is broad enough to provide a rigorous foundation of environmental knowledge, and flexible enough to facilitate individualized, action-oriented research and scholarship.
Antioch University New England's doctoral program is founded on the conviction that theory and practice go hand-in-hand and that our most essential research questions arise from integrating professional experiences and scholarship.
Imagine yourself joining an interdisciplinary team with an ecologist, a historian, a geologist, an economist, an artist, a writer, and an educator. This is your faculty and your cohort. Engage in coursework and seminars with a small group of students whose experience and wide-ranging interests will augment your own.
Specialize in the research area for which you have a passion and apply the theories and methods best suited to your research interests. Leverage our explicitly interdisciplinary curriculum and our mission to integrate science, policy, humanities, education, and service. This knowledge will position you to pursue sustainable solutions to pressing local, national and international environmental challenges.
Scholarship, practice, and service
Study with faculty members who bridge disciplinary and methodological boundaries, who model the integration of scholarship and practice, who emphasize the role of service, and who are recognized locally, nationally, and internationally.
A program structure that works for you
