Program Description:

The Master of Science in Environmental Science and Policy (ES&P) graduate program at Clark University prepares students for evolving and critical careers at the intersection of environmental science and policy. ES&P continues a long tradition of innovation and creative contributions to environmental challenges - the current program has evolved from one of the first environmental programs in the country to explore relationships between environmental science, technology, and society. Environmental challenges are complex. ES&P teaches students to use knowledge and methods from both the natural and social sciences, integrate quantitative and qualitative analytical tools, and understand the connections among environment, technology, society, and development. With this program's course of study, the ES&P student is equipped with skills and perspectives to work with a wide array of stakeholders - communities, industries, governmental agencies, NGOs, researchers, and donors - in ways that are sensitive to cultural, institutional, socio-political, and economic needs. ES&P students have opportunities to participate in high quality, meaningful research collaborations. They have access to faculty that have experience working with a racially and socially diverse student population. ES&P graduates are able to recognize, frame, characterize, and creatively address the many environmental problems around us today.
