PhD Programs in Environmental Studies

The goals of an environmental studies program include finding ways to increase energy efficiency, minimize pollution, increase environmental awareness and encourage alternative energy use. The main focus for students is to learn how to assess and solve environmental problems.

A country situated to the southern tip of Africa, South Africa has a rich culture that you will never get enough of while touring or studying here. The languages here include Afrikaans and English, as well nine other official languages. The campus life of the vast South African University, University of Johannesburg or any other university will be mind blowing. You will love the tropical climate and interacting with other students from South African and from around the world

Requirements for the PhD program often involve the student having already obtained a Master’s degree. Additionally, a thesis or dissertation primarily consisting of original academic research must be submitted. In some countries, this work may even need to be defended in front of a panel.
