  1. Hi all! I'm looking for PhD programs in environmental studies with an interdisciplinary approach - ideally, a program that'll be supportive of combining environmental studies with perspectives and methodologies such as anthropology, queer studies, postcolonialism and/or animal studies. Got any leads? I've heard of a few programs that might do that: The Institute for the Environment & Sustainability at UCLA The E-IPER (Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources) at Stanford The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society at the University of Munich I'll be glad to hear of more if you know any, and if there's anyone here who have studies or studies in one of these programs, I'd love to hear about your experiences. Thanks!

  3. 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 would be most welcome! I'm having a very hard time figuring out what programs suit my mixed work/academic experience, are attainable for admittance, etc. For context, I'm changing careers from environmental journalism. I already have a different Master's from a top university, with a bachelor degree in political science and substantial undergrad coursework in biology and ecology. My work experience has been pretty scattered, though it's all environmental: journalism, communications, advocacy, and research. In a program, I'm looking for something with strong social science research component (like environmental geography), as well as substantial training in ecology and life sciences for someone without a previous bachelor of science. Dream job: to do in-the-field research and project management for an international nonprofits, related to sustainable development, agroecology, wildlife conservation, and/or climate adaptation. Any thoughts or ideas would be most appreciated! Thanks for reading.
  4. Hi guys, I applied for the MES fall 2018 at Penn and i'm yet to hear back from them. I just want to know if anyone else applied and is equally waiting to hear back. I submitted my application before their April 1 deadline but completed my application end of may , that's 6 weeks till date. I have written to the school and i was advised to wait two more weeks (which ended Friday). Should i be worried? Eek ? considering i'm international and would probably have to apply for form i20, campus housing and student visa.
  5. Hey! Anyone here joining the Sustainability program at ASU this fall for their Ph.D.?
  6. Has anyone heard back from the Master of Environmental Studies in Management Sustainability program at Waterloo?
  7. 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!
