Master of Science in Environmental Science


General Guidelines
Environmental Science course requirements are listed below. The department has developed graduate core course and electives for students enrolled in the program. The program offers advanced courses in specialized areas such as environmental chemistry, environmental remediation, data analysis, instrumental analysis, limnology, remote sensing, watershed management, and wetland ecology. Graduate students may also take courses offered in other departments if the courses are relevant to environmental science and the student's professional goals. Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.00 (out of 4.00) in all course work presented for the degree. Under the guidance of an advisor, graduate students have the option to choose from either a thesis or non-thesis option to complete their studies.
