The Master of Science in Environmental Sciences through the Laney Graduate School at Emory University integrates ecological and earth sciences with policy and social sciences in a two-year program emphasizing quantitative research and practice. Benefiting from a growing program with ready access to faculty, students will participate in interdisciplinary research aimed at understanding and resolving complex environmental issues facing humanity in the 21st century.

 

With a curriculum designed to develop quantitative skills and practice, students will have the opportunity to work closely with faculty to develop a research focus and thesis. Graduates will gain the expertise needed to relate scientific findings to policy decisions and are prepared post-graduation for work across an array of agencies (governmental, inter-governmental) and  in areas of natural resource management, biodiversity and species conservation, and environmental management and conservation.

 

Research disciplines of faculty include:

·         Ecology and Conservation

·         Disease Ecology and Global Health

·         Environmental Policy

·         Resource Management

·         Sustainability and Development

·         Earth and Atmospheric Sciences

·         Urban Environment

·         Geography and Spatial Sciences

 

Applications will be accepted through May 2015 for enrollment in fall 2015.
