The program is based on the tenet that graduate education in the environmental sciences requires training and research linking the disciplines of chemistry, biology, ecology, physics and human health. To foster interdisciplinary interactions, the program recognizes that students must have a strong core curriculum within the environmental sciences. Beyond that, flexible graduatelevel education and research is promoted. The program administers solely a Plan A graduate course of study and research at both the M.S. and Ph.D. level. The program's faculty comes from the University of Nevada, Reno (College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources, College of Arts and Science, College of Engineering and School of Mines), the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and the Desert Research Institute. The environmental sciences and health program consists of three disciplinary tracks which serve as focal points for student recruitment, faculty participation, and administration of academic and research activities. The tracks are: environmental chemistry, ecological toxicology, and environmental toxicology and health. Theenvironmental chemistry track focuses on the source, transport, transformation and fate of chemicals in the environment. The ecological toxicology track addresses biological and ecological issues of fate and effects, ranging from biochemical mechanisms of toxicity in nonhuman species to biogeochemistry of xenobiotics in man-made and natural ecosystems. The environmental toxicology track addresses issues in human health and environmental quality, including biochemistry, physiology and nutrition. Interdisciplinary and Special Programs 281 Prospective graduate students should have a GRE score exceeding 1,000 (verbal plus quantitative), TOEFL score exceeding 600 (international students), and an undergraduate or graduate major in biology, chemistry, ecology, physics or human health (or a related major). Applicants for the M.S. and Ph. D. programs must have an undergraduate GPAexceeding2.75 and 3.0,respectively. In addition, the program has a series of undergraduate course prerequisites, and deficiencies must be made up during the first year of graduate study. Applicants must have a faculty sponsor prior to acceptance in the program. Amore detailed list of entrance requirements is available from the program office. Candidates for both the M.S. and Ph.D. degree must satisfy all general requirements of the Graduate School. In addition, the environmental sciences and health program requires students to take a minimum of three of the five core courses plus the program's seminar series.

Chase Jr. scholarship program and an internship program. It also serves as advisor to the International Affairs student organization. The major in international affairs involves an" expanded field of concentration" involving 36 credits plus corequisites. As a consequence, those who select this major may, under appropriate circumstances, use up to three courses from this major to simultaneously fulfill minor or second major requirements. Both capstones may be taken within the major if taught in different departments. The diversity of options within the major and stress placed upon study abroad experiences means that advisement should be sought prior to enrollment each semester. Entering students should plan to take Economics 101 and 102, International Affairs 100, and foreign language courses during their first year. In some cases, introductory courses at the 200-level may be recommended in the second semester. International students should consider the 1 DO-level survey courses in European Interdisciplinary and Special Programs 287 and American history or politics as ways of improving their performance in the Core Humanities sequence and in other courses in the major which assume some familiarity with history, society and government in Europe and North America. The courses comprising the international affairs major provide extensive training in analysis, synthesis, writing and speaking in a public setting. They may lead toward a broad range of careers, depending upon interests, specializations within the major, and tools acquired such as language fluency. In many cases, an additional professional degree will be required to enter attractive careers. Program advisement includes extensive advice on career options and requirements. Optional internships may provide the experiential basis for choosing or rejecting careers. The major in international affairs consists of a 21-credit required component and a 15-credit specialized option. The latter includes a senior thesis supervised by an appropriate faculty member, with topic and supervisor approved by the program director. Area study options require an appropriate language. The Required Component of the Major-21 credits International Affairs 100-A Global Perspective.. 3 International Relations (PSC 211, 231 or 336) . 3 International Economic Institutions (ECON 305,458, 459, 460). .. ..... ........ .. 3 Culture, Geography and Ideas . 6 Research Tools (GEOG 325 or 416; IS 101; PSC 320 or 427; or statistics) . ........ ....... ....... ........ 3 Upper-Division Diplomacy (HIST 407a, 407b; IAFF 300; PSC 336, 430,432, 436,437, 438,439, 440, 459). 3 Specialized Component Options-IS credits Area Studies I: Asia Area Studies II: Europe Area Studies III: Latin America Area Studies IV: North America Diplomacy, Law and Organization International Environmental Studies International Political Economy Each semester as a part of the advisement process, the international affairs program publishes a student guide which lists and categorizes courses (including new and topical courses) that may be used as part of the major.
