The Department of Environmental Sciences at Texas Christian University has opportunities available for prospective MS students (starting fall 2021) in the areas of urban and community forestry and disaster recovery and resilience. Potential research projects include 1) evaluating ecosystem services of urban forests in the Dallas-Fort Worth or Central Texas regions and 2) assessing long-term disaster recovery efforts of parks and protected places along the Texas Gulf Coast. Research projects will be grounded in the emerging field of sustainability science and use quantitative and qualitative methods to examine interactions between social and natural systems. Funding is available for highly qualified applicants. The application deadline for fall 2021 is imminent but flexible. If interested, contact Dr. Brendan Lavy at email@example.com.
A bachelor’s degree with a major in environmental science, biology, geology (or the equivalent) or a major in one of the other sciences, or engineering, or one of the social sciences. Students with undergraduate preparations different from these will be considered after careful review.
You must have completed at least one year of biology, one semester of physical geology, one year of chemistry, one semester of calculus or one semester of introductory statistics. The GRE is not required. Any submitted GRE score is part of a holistic review of each application.
