The Environmental Studies Department is extremely proud of the accomplishments and achievements of its students and faculty.
Student Opportunities for Study & Research Abroad
Opportunities for experiential learning is what sets our graduate programs apart from more traditional programs, reflecting our commitment to field-based collaborative research, teaching, and learning.
Field Study Trips
Field Study Trips offer students an exciting opportunity to study abroad and build collaborations with ecologists, conservationists, environmental educators, and environmental advocates from around the world.
Internships provide a great opportunity to travel and study abroad. Whether you learn sustainable farming practices in India, effective wildlife management in Kenya or community organizing in Uganda, each internship helps you develop practical and professional skills while expanding your cultural boundaries.
The Center for Tropical Ecology and Conservation
The Center for Tropical Ecology and Conservation promotes the sustainable and just use of tropical ecosystems by training conservation leaders, conducting conservation research with partner organizations, and serving as an educational resource for the New England Community. CTEC operates in three main areas: Research, Education, and Student Support.
Master’s students are required to complete a capstone research project in one of the following ways: Master’s Thesis, Master’s Project, or Collaborative Service Initiative (CSI). Each of these options allows the student to develop her or his passion for a topic by exploring it in greater depth than course work or internships allow.
A doctoral student will complete a dissertation that may include international research.
