Program overview

Habitat loss, global climate change, water and air pollution, ozone depletion, species invasions, loss of biodiversity, and the accumulation of toxic wastes are among the many environmental dilemmas our society faces. These complex problems pit environmental limits against economic development, diverse cultures, ethics, values, and social stability and therefore require an understanding of science, policy, society, history, and economics. Environmental scientists must use integrated and holistic approaches to understand and find sustainable solutions to these problems. Graduates of the environmental science program are well prepared for a variety of environmental careers including consulting, research, policy, and outreach, or further graduate work towards a doctoral degree.

Plan of study

Built on the concept that environmental issues are inherently interdisciplinary, the program is offered in collaboration with the College of Liberal Arts. The curriculum provides students with a deep understanding of the science behind our environmental problems, the complex set of circumstances that impact environmental issues, and how environmental decisions and policies must attempt to find a balance between environmental conservation, human well-being, and economic development. Students augment their hands-on classroom work with in-depth experiential learning through an individual thesis or project that provides students with the chance to work on real-world environmental problems under the guidance of skilled environmental scientists. The program includes a core curriculum and electives chosen to reflect the student’s background and career goals. A minimum of 34 semester credit hours beyond the bachelor’s degree is required. All students must propose, conduct, and report on an original research thesis or project.

Curriculum

Course sequence differs according to thesis/project option, see website for a particular option's modules

Other admission requirements

-Submit official transcripts (in English) from all previously completed undergraduate and graduate course work.
-Have a minimum GPA of 3.0 (overall and in science/math).
-Submit a statement outlining the candidate's research/project interests, career goals, and suitability to the program.
-Submit three letters of recommendation, and complete a graduate application.
-International applicants whose native language is not English must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A minimum score of 600 (paper-based) is required. International English Language Testing System (IELTS) scores are accepted in place of the TOEFL exam. Minimum scores will vary; however, the absolute minimum score required for unconditional acceptance is 7.0. For additional information about the IELTS, please visit http://www.ielts.org.
-The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is recommended but not required for applicants with an undergraduate degree from a US institution.The GRE is required for International applicants.
-Students are strongly encouraged to contact program faculty before applying to discuss thesis topics and research projects. Students will be matched with a potential thesis advisor at the time of admission.

In­te­gra­ting pu­blic and pri­va­te eco­no­mic law, the pro­gram­me brings to­ge­ther two are­as of law that are of­ten co­ve­r­ed in­de­pen­dent­ly in le­gal li­te­ra­tu­re as well as in teaching. This di­vi­si­on will be over­co­me wi­t­hin the frame­work of this pro­gram­me to pro­vi­de stu­dents with a ho­lis­tic ap­proach on in­ter­na­tio­nal eco­no­mic law that cha­rac­te­ri­ses this area of law in prac­tice. The pro­gram­me aims to de­li­ver a broad, sci­en­ti­fic and pro­found en­ga­ge­ment with the play­ers and struc­tu­res of in­ter­na­tio­nal eco­no­mic law (first stu­dy year in Lüne­burg) and, as well as to fa­ci­li­ta­te an ad­di­tio­nal spe­cia­li­sa­ti­on in one of the core sub­jects of in­ter­na­tio­nal eco­no­mic law such as Cor­po­ra­te & Fi­nan­ci­al Law, In­ter­na­tio­nal Com­mer­ci­al Law, In­ter­na­tio­nal Com­pe­ti­ti­on Law & Po­li­cy or In­tel­lec­tu­al Pro­per­ty & the Di­gi­tal Eco­no­my (se­cond stu­dy year in Glas­gow).
