Research & Projects

The Bren School is a leading center of environmental research conducted by faculty, PhD students, postdoctoral students, and master's students, particularly as part of the Master's Group Project, the capstone project that serves as the thesis for the Master of Environmental Science & Management degree.

Strategic Environmental Research Initiative (SERI)

Research is pursued in the natural sciences, such as microbiology, ecology and the other environmental sciences; earth sciences, such as hydrology, geography, and geomorphology; political science and law as they relate to the environment; environmental economics and other social sciences, and computer science or geo-informatics.

A number of programs, initiatives, centers, and other entities (see Research Affiliates) provide further points of connection and communication between researchers at the Bren School and their colleagues in other departments and universities.
