Experts in environmental chemistry examine the physical science underlying environmental problems and find potential solutions. The combined Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Environmental and Green Chemistry degree equips graduates for the competitive field with the latest knowledge and professional experience.
Studying in Washington, D.C. — the national hub of environmental policy decision making — brings with it exclusive internships and mentoring opportunities at institutions like the World Health Organization, the Environmental Defense Fund, the American Chemical Society and the Environmental Protection Agency. Many of these competitive jobs require a master’s degree in the field; at GW, undergraduate students can complete that degree on an accelerated track.
