Environmental Studies

A brief description of the graduate degree program (1st program):

The Environmental Studies graduate program is an interdisciplinary program with specializations (secondary core areas) in Sciences, Policy and Values & Theory.

Meeting environmental challenges of the 21st century requires research, education and training that spans traditional disciplinary boundaries and emphasizes the interconnections of science and decision making. Drawing on the resources of the entire University of Colorado system, we have designed a truly interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Environmental Studies that awards two degrees: Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. Two dual degree programs with other departments are offered. ENVS offers an interdisciplinary Certificate in Environment, Policy and Society for non-ENVS graduate students. The university offers many other certificate programs suitable to ENVS graduate students.

ENVS graduate studies offers a robust sustainability education with all faculty co-rostered in other academic departments thus grounding the training in interdisciplinary and systems-thinking perspectives. This is consistent with CU's approach to sustainability--that of a interdisciplinary education that trains in systems thinking and all sustainability elements.
