2 years in Madrid + 2 years in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
The Environmental Science program focuses on developing a scientific understanding of Earth's natural systems and their interconnections with human society. The curriculum is built upon a model that combines a comprehensive background in the natural sciences with specialized training in a chosen area of interest. All students entering the Environmental Science program are required to complete a core set of preparatory and skill-development courses that provide a rigorous introduction to the environmental sciences. Students then choose a specialized 'track' that provides more advanced instruction in a specific discipline: Atmospheric Science Track, Biology Track, Chemistry Track, and the Geoscience Track.
You can complete the first two years of your environmental science degree on the Madrid Campus before transferring to the St. Louis Campus for the final two years. The academic curriculum on the two campuses is completely integrated.
In Madrid, you will work with faculty members from across the globe who are committed to excellent teaching, mentoring and scholarship. Beyond the classroom and laboratories, you will be part of an international community of students who come from as many as 65 different countries. You’ll develop your language skills, oral and written communication skills, problem-solving abilities and intercultural awareness.
Our admission criteria are flexible in order to accommodate students coming from different educational systems.
Students who have completed their secondary education in the Spanish system must present their marks from the 3rd and 4th year of ESO as well as 1st and 2nd years of Bachillerato, and they must pass Selectividad. Additionally, we require an official academic English exam (TOEFL or IELTS).
If you have questions about the requirements for any specific educational system, please contact the Office of Admissions at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Graduates with a degree in environmental science typically go on to work for environmental companies, industry, government and non-profit organizations or continue their studies in graduate or professional schools. During their careers, graduates will have to address many important issues related to our environment including global warming, energy resource depletion, loss of biodiversity, extinctions, pollution, water resources and environmental hazards such as tsunamis, hurricanes and volcanic eruptions. Importantly, the scientific skills that students acquire equip them for many career paths including, for example, the financial sector as well as management positions in a range of different organizations.
