- Environmental Science
The M.S. in Natural Sciences program develops a broad-based scientific background in one of four tracks: Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Geosciences. The program also develops the research skills necessary to design and conduct original research.
The opportunity to take graduate courses in a specific track or combine graduate courses from each of the tracks allows the student to design a graduate course of study to suit his or her own specific interests and goals. The two-year curriculum allows students to focus on required courses and complete research in a timely manner. Graduate assistantship employment opportunities provide tuition and competitive stipends.
The Master of Science in Natural Sciences Biology Track emphasizes development of a broadly-based scientific background as well as research skills necessary to design and conduct original research. The opportunity to take graduate courses in biology and focus in a specific sub-discipline of biology or combine graduate courses from geology and environmental sciences allows the student to design a graduate course of study to suit his or her own specific interests and goals.
The Master of Natural Science - Environmental Science track offers a unique master’s degree that is a comprehensive and broadly-based course of study. We offer state of the art science courses in toxicology, ecology, anthropology, environmental chemistry, environmental geology, paleontology, geomorphology, hydrology, and geography. Because many aspects of our environmental problems are inherently societal issues, we also have courses in Environmental Law and Regulation; Culture and the Environmental; Human Ecology; Land-Use and Waste Management; and Water Resources Management. With such a diversity of course offerings and flexible curriculum, each student can design a unique program suited to his or her individual goals.
