You live in a world that serves up escalating environmental threats to its health and well-being each day. So what makes you different from the millions of others facing the same risks? You're ready to roll up your sleeves and do something about it. And at Clark University, we share your passion for the big challenges.

The Environmental Science and Policy master's degree is academically rigorous and experientially empowering.
