The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
Environmental sciences is a field of study that encompasses a few different scientific disciplines. Typically, study in a program covers physical science, information science, and biological science as they relate to the environment and solving environmental issues.
