SIUE to offer PhD in environmental resources and policy
In its fight to address environmental problems with global impact, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) is launching a new PhD program.
Beginning with the fall 2017 semester, students can earn a PhD in environmental resources and policy through a cooperative effort with the Carbondale campus.
“It is crucial that our natural resource policies be informed with solid scientific discoveries,” SIUE Dean Jerry Weinberg said in a statement. “The cooperation between the two campuses does this by bringing together the study of policy and resource use with the scientific inquiry of the environment. The interests of the two faculties mesh together in important areas such as toxicology and river resource use. We anticipate interesting and impactful research to be produced through this cooperative program.”
The program will offer advanced disciplinary training on physical, biological and social processes responsible for natural resource and environmental problems.
Concentrations will be available in water resources, climatology, energy and mineral resources, earth and environmental processes, forestry, agricultural and rural land resources, environmental policy and administration, geographic information systems and environmental modeling.
