Goucher's MA in Environmental Studies is an applied program that draws from the research methodologies and perspectives of such fields as philosophy of science, sociology, applied anthropology, cultural geography, economics, media studies, political science, ecology, and social entrepreneurship. Providing students with an integrated set of tools to work with communities, organizations, and researchers.
We focus on the importance of social and cultural contexts in understanding and responding to environmental issues. Recognizing that environmental practitioners who may not be scientists must still be able to engage in productive and meaningful dialogue with colleagues in the sciences, Goucher's program will provide the science literacy and quantitative skills necessary to engage all constituencies in these fields.
- Goucher’s is what makes us unique. Not only are online classes convenient for our students, but they also allow us to draw on the best faculty from around the world. But it's the residencies that are really special, providing a forum for intensive face-to-face collaboration and camaraderie in an atmosphere of rigorous learning.
- Our bring experience from varied backgrounds to inspire you, help you generate new ideas, and refine your existing ideas with sophisticated and global perspectives that showcase your passion, creativity, and skills.
