Stanford's Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources (E-IPER) trains the next generation of interdisciplinary scholars and leaders to address the world's most challenging environmental and sustainability problems.

E-IPER students combine academic disciplines including natural and earth sciences, engineering, economics, humanities, social sciences, law, health, policy, and business to yield new insights and novel solutions to urgent global problems such as energy use, climate change, food security, freshwater availability, human health and sanitation, depletion of ocean resources, land degradation, and biodiversity loss.

E-IPER offers a PhD in Environment and Resources and, for students in Stanford's Graduate School of Business, Stanford Law School or School of Medicine, a Joint MS in Environment and Resources in conjunction with their professional degree (MBA, JD or MD). E-IPER's degrees are awarded by the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences.
