MES in the Community

  • “I got my dream job because of the Master of Environmental Studies (MES) program,” beams Lauren McGrath (MES ’16), a freshwater ecologist at the Willistown Conservation Trust in Newtown Square, PA.

  • “I love the career I am in now. During my first class in the Master of Environmental Studies (MES) program, I read about sustainability, and the ideas behind ‘people, planet, profit,’ and my head almost exploded. I knew this was it,” shares Dom McGraw (MES ’13).

  • “There is an amazing confluence of smart, dedicated people in the Philadelphia area who want to do good work for the environment—and I’m thrilled my job is a part of that,” shares Jesse Buerk (Master of Environmental Studies ’08), Senior Capital Program Coordinator for the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC).

  • “While I was student teaching, my students told me ‘Ms. Aziz, you’re a different person when you interact with plants.’ They inspired me to come to the Master of Environmental Studies (MES) at Penn,” shares Tasnim Aziz.

  • “I’ve always been curious about the world around me,” shares Elizabeth Madara (Master of Environmental Studies ‘12). “Growing up, my parents had a rule that if the sun was out, so were we.”
