Our interdisciplinary graduate education program provides Ph.D. students with an interdisciplinary perspective on rapid global change and equips them with a unique toolset to be the next leaders solving the most pressing socio-environmental challenges of our time.
Comprised of about 70 Ph.D. fellows from numerous departments each year, our unique program draws from the diverse perspectives of our faculty with the intent of preparing our students to become agents of change. In addition to providing students with a thriving and supportive campus-wide community, the program enhances their skills and knowledge in leadership, science communication, stakeholder engagement, collaboration, environmental justice, and other competencies to prepare them for their future. Our alumni are making a difference as professionals in academia, NGOs, government agencies, and the private sector.
