A brief description of the graduate-level degree program:

Evergreen’s Master of Environmental Studies (MES) degree incorporates natural sciences, social sciences, public policy, and environmental humanities. The program takes students from a core of interdisciplinary studies, through electives and internships, up to a research project presented and published before graduation. Masters candidates work with a variety of faculty throughout their studies, including professionals in the field.

MES recognizes that the best environmental solutions come from a wide variety of perspectives, which is reflected in the students who represent a wide range of ages, cultures, and expertise. Regardless of a student’s educational or work background, graduates are trained to build upon their strengths by creating holistic approaches to environmental challenges through exploration and collaboration. MES students are supported in sustainability-focused thesis work.
