  1. Hi! I am currently looking into the different courses offered by the LSE in economics/environment/development and I wanted to know if any of you have done or have feedback on any of the following courses : - MSc Development Management - MSc Environment and Development - MSc Environmental Economics and Climate Change - MSc Environmental Policy and Regulation - MSc Political Economy of Late Development - MSc Political Science and Political Economy - MSc European and International Public Policy Thank you in advance, it would be very helpful in my acade
  2. Hello everyone, Could anyone shed some light on the differences between environmental management, environmental policy, environmental geography, sustainable development, environmental science, and environmental studies Master's degrees? I'm wondering not only about the types of careers that people enter after, but what mix of life sciences, social science, and project management are taught in the programs themselves. I realize this is EXTREMELY broad and therefore difficult to specify---particularly given how interdisciplinary many of these programs are---but any experience or insight wo
  3. It's almost priority deadlines for Yale F&ES, Nicholas school, SEAS, and others. I saw there was a 2019 topic on env management and policy, so I thought I'd start one for this admissions cycle. Let's help each other out, commiserate (hopefully not), and (sustainably) celebrate together! For all applicants to MEMs, environmentally-focused MPPs/MPAs, etc
  4. Hi all! I'm very interested in the Ecological Restoration Master's offered by Simon Fraser University and BCIT (In British Columbia, Canada). I feel like it has the perfect balance of field work and diligent research to check all of my particular boxes, and everything I read up on this program makes excites me. I know I would love being in the field of ecological restoration or conservation, and this master's genuinely seems like my perfect fit. HOWEVER! It's relatively new (started in 2015), and is the only master's degree of it's kind in Canada according to the SFU and BCIT websites. Th
  5. How do I select between the following- 1. University of Michigan at Ann Arbor- School for Environment and Sustainability- MSc in Natural Resources and Environment- Specialization in Sustainable Systems 2. Duke University- Nicholas School of Environment- Master of Environmental Management- concentration in Energy and Environment 3. Penn State University- MSc in Energy and Mineral Engineering concentration in Energy Management and Policy 4. Cornell University- MSc in Mechanical Engineering- concentration in Energy and Sustainability 5. Carnegie Mellon University- MS in E
  6. I saw that someone posted that they got into the Master of Environmental Management program for F17, and if someone is willing to claim it, when did you submit the application? I spoke with the office and they said admissions was rolling so I wanted to see when I should expect to hear back.
  7. Help! The decision is right around the corner, and I need to start mentally preparing for this (huge) life change/decision. For anyone who has considered, attended, or decided - where do I pursue my MEM, Duke or Yale? I visited Duke, and I could tell it was a great program. The administration is clearly willing to help students out financially, supportive with research and work opportunities, and they consistently tout their alumni network as one of the best. Many people seem to say Duke really emphasizes building concrete technical skills, and that it might be easier to find a job u
  8. Hey all, Hope everyone is taking the time to breathe even as March approaches. I applied to the Yale FES PhD program and received an email from the Department in late January kindly letting me know that they would not be accepting me (no surprise as I graduate undergrad May 2018) and encouraging me to apply to one of their masters programs. I applied to the mesc program, and was wondering if anyone else had this experience? They said admission was not guaranteed and that matriculation into the Masters program would not guarantee later admission to their PhD program however to ta
  9. I’m still waiting to hear back from Duke’s University Program in Environmental Policy - through the Nicholas School. I’ve seen rejections from the program on the results board in early Feb and their website says they will provide decisions by mid-February but I haven’t received anything and there have been no changes made to my portal. I haven’t seen anyone else posting about this program and was hoping to connect with anyone else who applied to I can just know this silence is a soft rejection and move on. Thank you!!
  10. Any natural resources master degrees here? I am aiming for human dimension of natural resources master degree and I cannot found any info here:( I would like to find general gre scores, research thesis, gre scores..
  11. Hi All! I am a recent graduate (c/o 2016) interested in pursuing a Masters and/or PhD in Urban Planning in Fall 2018 (Interested in merging Public Health and Analytics - Using City/Regional data to create healthier spaces) Undergrad Major: Global Health and Environment, 3.39 GPA (3.76 major GPA) GRE: Haven't taken it yet, but I'm a decent test taker and will probably score in the upper 70s or mid/lower 80 percentile) Programs: Columbia GSAPP's MSUP (Urban Analytics), UC Berkeley, I have spent the past few months interning at public health organizations (domestic & internation
  12. I've been applying to schools for fall 2018 admission into statistics master's programs with a focus on environmental statistics. I've nearly decided all the schools I will apply to but am trying to add one more. I've tried to apply to a bunch of schools across the spectrum of program rankings and was wondering if anyone could help me decide if I should add one more safety program or a more middle of the pack program given my profile and schools I've applied to. GRE: 162 quant, 162 verbal, 5 writing GPA: 3.30/4.0 Undergrad majors in economics and statistics Schools I've ap
  13. Hi All, Decisions are hard, any insight would be greatly appreciated! A bit of background: I'm from the Midwest, got my undergrad degree in Environmental Science and Policy, and I am hoping to specialize in sustainable energy. Ultimately, I am hoping to work on multilateral sustainable energy issues. Still waiting to hear back from Oxford and LSE, but my currently these are my top choices: 1) Columbia University - MPA in Environmental Science and Policy -1 year. Obviously, Columbia is a great school with high name recognition and I assume a really great alumni network. The locatio
  14. Hi all! I'm only applying to one PhD program so I am very nervous about getting admitted. Making it worse is that there is no information on here at all about my intended program. Is anyone else out there applying to the Earth, Environment, and Society PhD program at Portland State University?! Or has anyone previously applied or attended? Just looking for some people to commiserate with! Background stats for me: Undergrad: 3.0 GPA, UC Berkeley, Physics Masters: ~4.0 (no grades, written evaluations only), Evergreen State College, Environmental Science/Studies
  15. I attend a small liberal arts college in Massachusetts that does not have a geography department. I'm an Urban Studies major and am attracted to studying Geography after undergraduate because I am fascinated with maps and spatial analysis. I have two questions: 1) Since I am not a geography major and do not have access to many geography courses, am I at a serious disadvantage in getting accepted into a M.A. or Ph.D. program in Geography? 2) What experience would I need in order to be competitive for a M.A. or Ph.D. program in Geography? There is no one with a Ph.D. in Geography at the col
  16. This week I received admission to Oxford's 1-year MSc in Environmental Change and Management program (funding not announced yet - I will need to decide before they let me know), LSE's 1-year MSc in Climate Change and Environmental Economics (no funding), and UBC's 2-year MA/MSc program at the Institute for Resources, Environment, and Sustainability (RMES) (with a full ride and very generous living expenses through SSHRC). I am really excited to have these choices, but very overwhelmed. Both LSE and Oxford would mean going into substantial debt (at least $40k CAD for the year) - I might ge
  17. Just got 2 admissions. All great schools! Hard to decide...... I am an international fresh undergraduate from China. No full-time working experience. My goal after Master Degree: Looking for a job in US. Analyst/Data Analyst will be perfect. Energy or Healthcare industry are both appealing to me. So I wish to know which program can help me to fulfill this target. I am not sure whether these 2 programs can lead me to this target directly.. (maybe neither of them can...haha) 1. Yale MEM Pros: - Great school&program -Yale F&ES is top
  18. Hi guys, after being a diligent follower of the site, here goes my first post. I am an international student interested in environmental policy PhD for fall 2016. Masters in Environmental Science with 83%, GRE: 311, TOEFL: 110, one internship in environmental consultancy, one project on ecosystem valuation during masters, one internship with a government organisation, decent LORs, One paper under review. no such background with policy work though tried to make a connection in my SOP UCSB is my dream school, but haven't heard from them till now. I checked on the result page and one st
  19. 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) requir
  20. Hey Guys, I will mostly be heading to Syracuse this fall to SUNY ESF for my masters. Any one else heading that side? I'm an international student so wont be visiting the campus before, but if any one else is going to the campus, please share your views. See you in August
