In seeking to address the challenges associated with climate change, organizations across the globe are increasingly looking for employees with skills that cross disciplines including science, public policy, and economics. Our MS in Climate Science and Solutions program takes an interdisciplinary approach that prepares you to tackle diverse global climate change issues.

Here, you’ll boost your skill set and learn to perform more effectively in a variety of professional environments. 
You’ll delve into the science of climate change and the policy, economics, and technology of climate change mitigation. And you can select electives to create an emphasis oriented toward your interests in biological, engineering, policy, or economic approaches to climate solutions.

The program also offers internships that instill professional development through on-site experience with a private firm, NGO, or government agency working in climate change mitigation and adaptation.
