Environmental and Biomolecular Systems (EBS) Track
The EBS track is for students who want to focus their graduate study on a holistic view of the physical, chemical, and biological processes that affect human and environmental health.
- Assessing environmental health effects
- Multiscale biogeochemistry
The track emphasizes fundamental understanding of processes at molecular, cellular and particle levels in environmental and biomolecular systems. Most students become highly engaged this research soon after matriculation. In addition, EBS track students take three core courses (Environmental & Biomolecular History of the Earth, Environmental Bioinorganic Chemisrty, Environmental Systems and Human Health), and a personalized selection of elective courses, reading groups, and seminars.
Many of our graduates continue in careers that involve environmental and biomolecular systems research by government agencies, research centers, non-profits, colleges and universities. Other graduates are successful in the environmental services sector, with notable impacts nationwide. Here is a sample of careers:
- Academic research
- Advanced degrees in interdisciplinary sciences
- Pharmaceutical industry
- Water quality at municipal agency
