Graduate student digging in field

Graduate students in the Rubenstein School work closely with faculty who are dedicated to applied environmental research in service of society and have very active research programs. Faculty take an integrated approach to their research projects, work with other faculty teams in the School, and collaborate nationally and internationally with other researchers. The School has more than 40 graduate faculty members.

The Rubenstein School has a thriving and growing graduate program with approximately 128 graduate students between our Master's and Ph.D. programs. We are proud of our close-knit community that is characterized by high levels of engagement with undergraduate students, faculty, and staff in a vibrant learning-research atmosphere.

Graduate students interact frequently with their "hand-picked" Graduate Studies Committee to discuss the development and progress of their class work and research. Students interact with each other and the School's administration through the Rubenstein Graduate Student Association (RGSA).
