Student Research

We perform meaningful work and research that we are passionate about.

E&C graduate students have a broad array of interdisciplinary interests, connected by a common commitment to work towards sustainable and just environment and community relationships.

This commitment informs what they choose to work on for their culminating experience. Students are trained in research methods, and conduct fieldwork in the second year of the program.

Below is a list of completed theses and projects successfully submitted and defended by Environment and Community graduate students.
