The Environmental Sciences Ph.D. program at Wright State is designed to provide skills and training to better understand and solve complex environmental problems, such as those caused by anthropogenic pollutants, invasive species, habitat fragmentation and loss of biodiversity, that can affect both human and ecosystem health. Our students receive training in preparation for careers in academia, state and federal agencies, industry, and non-profit organizations.

Through a rigorous core curriculum and dissertation research, our interdisciplinary program is designed to broadly expose students to both traditional and emerging areas of environmental sciences, and offers the ability to focus on research in a more defined area. Our program includes faculty in the departments of Biological Sciences, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and Pharmacology and Toxicology.
