The Master of Science in Environmental Studies program focuses on sustainability education. The program prepares future environmental leaders, advances sustainability literacy, collaborates in teaching and research with multi-disciplinary faculty, and works in partnership across the community, state, region, country and world.

The schedule for the open house will be as follows:

  • 1:30 – 2 p.m. - Learn about the multidisciplinary Voinovich School, where public policy, environmental studies and entrepreneurship come together.
  • 2 – 3 p.m. - Speak with faculty, staff, students and alumni from a program of interest about diverse research projects and the School’s learning-by-doing approach.
  • 3 – 4 p.m. - Learn from faculty and current students about the Voinovich School’s applied learning projects, with several activities available for different areas of interest.

Prospective students may also arrive at The Ridges early to eat free pizza and attend an installment in the Voinovich School’s weekly Lunch and Learn series, featuring a public policy and environmental studies discussion and presentation on international climate change law by Cinnamon Piñon Carlarne, a professor from The Ohio State University. Taking place from 12 – 1 p.m. in Building 22, room 221, the Lunch and Learn will provide prospective students an opportunity to discuss today’s pressing issues with current Voinovich School students and faculty in a relaxed and informal environment.
