Environmental Science

Master's Degree in Environmental Science & Policy

The Program

ES&P is known for raising and addressing the hard questions – not blindly accepting "conventional wisdom" without proof and validation. The master's program in Environmental Science and Policy (ES&P) at Clark University prepares you for evolving and critical careers at the intersection of environmental science and policy. ES&P continues a long tradition of innovation and creative contributions to environmental challenges – the current program has evolved from one of the first environmental programs in the country to explore relationships between environmental science, technology, and society.

Course of Study

Applicants need a baccalaureate degree (or equivalent) to be eligible for the ES&P master's degree program. Domestic or overseas field experience related to environmental issues is highly desirable. The 12 course units include four required core courses, two skills courses, and then six elective courses to provide breadth and depth. We encourage students to take advantage of the diversity of courses offered throughout Clark University, and consider enrolling in courses offered in the other programs in the Department of International Development, Community, and Environment, and in other Clark University departments as approved by the student’s faculty advisor.
