Environmental Science

Doctoral students in environmental science pursue coursework and research in a wide variety of areas, which include:

  • Air quality
  • Water quality
  • Water treatment
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Solid and hazardous waste
  • Bioremediation
  • Stormwater treatment
  • Wetlands management

Students may start their graduate studies in the fall, spring or summer semester. A bachelor’s degree in a field of science is required for admission to the Ph.D. degree program in environmental engineering.

Exceptionally well-qualified baccalaureate degree holders may be accepted directly into the fast-track Ph.D. degree program without prior completion of a master’s degree.  Students in the fast-track Ph.D. program are not required to write a master’s thesis or complete the M.S. degree en route to the Ph.D.

Many full-time doctoral students in environmental science receive financial support from research assistantships, teaching assistantships, fellowships and scholarships.
