A brief description of the graduate-level degree program:

Meeting the environmental challenges of the 21st century requires research, education and training that spans traditional disciplinary boundaries and emphasizes the interconnections of social and natural sciences, policy, and the ethics and other social underpinnings of decision-making. With numerous focal areas and connections to research centers both in and out of the academic world, the Environmental Studies Program (ENVS) provides the resources and experiences needed by students seeking to contribute to environmental research and problem-solving. Drawing on the resources of the entire University of Colorado system, our truly interdisciplinary Graduate Program in ENVS awards three degrees: The Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy are academic degrees with an emphasis on research and academic training and are individually-tailored to fit each student’s research interests. The Masters of the Environment (MENV) graduate program is a cohort-based professional degree designed to equip students to solve real world environmental and natural resource problems, and prepares them for a wide range of careers in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
