About

ENVS offers graduate work leading to Ph.D. degree in Soil, Water and Environmental Science at University of Arizona.  Two tracks are offered, "Environmental Science" or "Soil and Water Science".

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

 In addition to the major, each student of the  Ph.D. degree in Soil, Water and Environmental Science at University of Arizona  must complete a minor, which can be intra- or interdepartmental. Many, if not most, SWES graduate students enroll in several non-ENVS courses as part of their program. This reflects the multi-disciplinary characteristics of the ENVS program in general, and also that a minor is required for all Ph.D. students. The most frequently used outside courses are in Chemistry, Chemical and Environmental Engineering, Hydrology and Water Resources, and Microbiology.
