University of Michigan School for Environment & Sustainability application is open

SEAS offers the most customizable and interdisciplinary graduate programs in the nation to prepare our students to be a leader and agent of environmental change.

This year, to eliminate financial barriers that can discourage qualified applicants, we are waiving the application fee for all applicants and no longer requiring/accepting the GRE for master’s applicants.

What makes SEAS different?

  • Our interdisciplinary approach joins natural and social scientists, designers, policy makers, engineers, and other disciplines from across campus. We bring together diverse backgrounds, programs, majors, and student activities to inspire critical thinking and creative problem solving.
  • Students will get hands-on experience to transform knowledge into impact. SEAS combines classroom learning with innovative teaching at our impressive network of natural areas, and around the world through individually tailored research projects and internships.
  • Students can enjoy all the benefits of a tightly knit community within a world-class research university. You’ll be guided by faculty who are renowned scholars in their fields, and join a worldwide community–more than 8,000 strong–of students, alumni, researchers, and partners.
  • SEAS has been a pioneer in environmental education for a century. From establishing environmental justice as a field in the 1960s and hosting the nation’s first Earth Day in the 1970s, to tackling today’s grand challenges of food and water security, climate change, and species loss, our global community champions bold ideas for a better future.
