to the Environmental Studies Graduate Program
Environmental Studies (ENST) Program opened its doors
in the late 1960’s and awarded its first degree
in the early 1970’s and is still going strong
today. It represents a large and academically diverse
inter-disciplinary graduate program for students wishing
to obtain a Master of Science in Environmental Studies.
The breadth and flexibility of the ENST Program has
acted as a magnet for academically and professionally
than conforming to a rigidly-defined curriculum,
students are encouraged to craft a graduate study
plan that meets both the core requirements of the
ENST Program, and allows them to pursue courses in
other departments that suit their own vocational
or intellectual goals.
The Program has been able to draw on excellent instructors and mentors
from an array of departments (e.g. biology, economics, geography, geology, history,
sociology, and others), and on a pool of highly trained environmental professionals
from local and regional government, as well as private environmental firms.
