Joint JD/Ph.D Program

Due to the demand for researchers and policymakers with interdisciplinary training in both law and environmental science, we offer a small and specialized joint degree program that enables students to earn a J.D. from the School of Law and a Ph.D. in Environmental Science and Policy (EVR).

This program enables students with strong interests in both environmental policy and law to prepare for careers in either the private or public sector in a shorter amount of time than if pursuing both degrees separately.

Students must apply for and be admitted to both the School of Law and the Ph.D. program.

For details, please see the School of Law website.
