We're a relatively small bunch, but I'm hoping to connect with others who are applying to PhD programs in environmental studies. This interdisciplinary field doesn't seem to have a home on The Grad Cafe forums, so let's start with this thread. I've tagged this post with several pertinent keywords, so I'm hoping that these tags will help us to find one another. Here are some representative stand-alone programs in Environmental Studies. Many, but not all, of these schools are known primarily for their Master's programs, but all have PhD programs as well. Most implicitly (or explicitly) require a Master's degree for acceptance into the PhD program: Berkeley ESPM & ERG Michigan SNRE Indiana SPEA Yale FES Duke's Nichols School UC Santa Barbara's Bren School Vermont's Rubenstein School Stanford's Woods Institute Wisconsin's Nelson Institute ASU's School of Sustainability Many of us are pursuing environmental training at the PhD level in a more traditional disciplinary department. This is possible in any number of departments, including: Sociology, Geography, Political Science, Ecology, Public Affairs, Anthropology, & Earth Science. I could attempt to list them here, but I don't think I can do justice to all of the academic departments known for their environmental faculty. About Me: I have a BS in Earth Science and an Master's Environmental Policy from one of the schools listed above. I have several years of experience in international development, and I'm looking to pursue a PhD in environmental social sciences. So what are your interests, what is your background, and where are you applying? Questions, concerns, curiosities about your fellow applicant cohort? Fire away!
