Graduate School & Career Fairs and Events

The Nicholas School admissions team is available to talk and answer your questions at the below Graduate School and Career Fairs, Forums and Events. At most fairs, alumni will also be in attendance to help answer questions from a student prospective. These fairs are free to the general public and are a great way for you to learn more about our on-campus MEM and MF programs, as well as the online DEL-MEM program for mid-career environmental professionals.
