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.

MS and 4+1 BA or BS/MS

Environmental Sciences Department faculty will not be accepting students to the Master’s Program for 2024.  Stay tuned for future developments regarding the expansion of our graduate programs.

The Environmental Sciences (ENVS) MS and 4+1 BA or BS/MS 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 4+1 BA or 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.

4+1 BS in ENVS/MPH in Environmental Health

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