The graduate program in environmental science (GPES), uniquely designed to address environmental issues from an interdisciplinary perspective, offers M.P.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees. GPES draws upon faculty from multiple departments to emphasize a balanced social and natural science approach to environmental understanding and stewardship.
GPES maintains a strong academic orientation, facilitating student and faculty engagement of fundamental environmental challenges such as resource utilization and sustainability, the uses and limits of scientific prediction, risk and sustainability, the uses and limits of scientific prediction and risk analysis, and a holistic concern for the health of the environment.
The Ph.D. program provides a unique opportunity to develop integrative research within a strong college community of environmental analysts and to draw upon the expertise of scholars at Syracuse University. Entering students are required to complete the equivalent of the GPES master's core either from prior graduate study or coursework taken within the first year of residency.
