Graduate Programs

The Department of Environmental Sciences (ENVS) offers students a variety of opportunities to engage in graduate studies within the department and within the greater Emory community. The Master of Science in Environmental Sciences is a two-year master’s degree program through the Laney Graduate School. Two five year programs are available to Emory and Oxford undergraduate students in Environmental Sciences, the BS/MS and the BS/MPH.

The Environmental Sciences (ENVS) master’s and BS/MS (4+1) programs are designed to train the next generation of professionals to effectively address a suite of complex environmental issues, with a goal of understanding and resolving interactions between humans and the environment.  Interdisciplinary in its design and quantitative in its approach, the master’s and BS/MS program will equip graduates with the necessary conceptual and quantitative skills to conduct applied research in environmental sciences, critically evaluate scholarly work, and communicate scientific findings to policy makers.

The Department of Environmental Sciences and the Department of Environmental Health in Rollins School of Public Health collaboratively offer the BS/MPH (4+1) degree program. Students accepted to the program will have the opportunity to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Emory College in Environmental Sciences and a Master of Public Health degree in Environmental Health in five years.

Departmental Lester Grants for Research and Travel offer funding opportunities for our graduate students as well.
