Master of Environmental Studies

This interdisciplinary degree prepares you for the complexities and challenges of environmental work. Situated on Puget Sound and minutes from the Washington state capitol, you’ll pursue hands-on environmental projects, policy research, and analysis with real-world impact.

"I’m focusing on rural health care, which I never thought I was going to be doing. I transferred here to do environmental science from a pre-nursing program. Then that led me to science education, which led me to health science education, which is how I found public health. Which is actually just environmental science, plus nursing, plus health education. So I could do it all as one thing.”
