Growing public awareness about the state of the environment, chemical product safety, and new chemical regulatory policies is driving demand for leaders who are able to understand the science underlying environmental challenges and thus develop innovative solutions. The Environmental and Green Chemistry program is offered at George Washington University.


Key facts

The Master of Science in Environmental and Green Chemistry, offered through George Washington University's Department of Chemistry, develops the experts needed with an interdisciplinary curriculum that fosters proficiency in evaluating the state of the environment and designing greener technologies.

Unlike many existing graduate programs in environmental chemistry, this unique 30-credit hour program places an emphasis on green chemistry—the design of new chemicals and chemical processes with minimal environmental impact. Students pursue five core focus areas: energy, environmental analytical chemistry, air/water chemistry, green chemical processing, and chemical toxicology. For a broader perspective, the curriculum can be tailored to students’ interests, and courses in public health, science policy, and business are encouraged. A capstone project enables students to apply the knowledge gained from other coursework and develop the interpersonal and communication skills needed to collaborate with scientists and laypeople alike.
