The Department of Environmental Studies administers an interdisciplinary program offering M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Environmental Science. At present, two fields of concentration, Environmental Chemistry and Environmental Policy and Management, are available to students seeking these degrees. Course work in support of specialized study in each field of concentration will frequently include courses from several departments. Research undertaken by candidates for the degrees will also often cross disciplinary lines. We anticipate addition of other fields of concentration as expertise develops and demand warrants.
