Group of three EBS scientific images

… Environmental Chemistry … Biogeochemistry …
  … Metallobiochemistry … Molecular Biology …

Where else can you study at the cutting-edge of all these fields in one,  closely-integrated community of like-minded researchers.

We have built a unique multi-disciplinary graduate program, which we call "Environmental and Biomolecular Systems" to link our strong degree programs in the more traditionally-defined fields of "Environmental Science and Engineering" and "Biochemistry and Molecular Biology".

Our degree programs give you the opportunity to be involved in bold, innovate research that cuts across the common boundaries between the environmental, biological, and health sciences.

 

Graduate Opportunities

As a graduate student, you will experience the best features of a traditional university with the intimacy and attention usually associated with a small college.

Courses are taught by world-class faculty who are experts in their respective fields. EBS courses cover both the fundamental and applied aspects of biochemistry, molecular biology, environmental science, environmental engineering, and environmental information technology.
