Environmental sciences are central to the mission of Oregon State University - a university with extensive programs related to the environment and wide use of natural resources. Oregon State is only one of two U.S. universities recognized as a land-, sea-, space- and sun-grant institution. Oregon State has exceptional strength in many of the disciplines that are required to provide a high-quality interdisciplinary education for future environmental scientists and to provide continuing post-graduate education to scientists who are already active in the field. The ES Graduate Program offers M.S., PSM and Ph.D. degrees.
Strong academic units closely related to environmental sciences span the university and can provide resources to students. OSU offers comprehensive instructional programs in agriculture, engineering, public health, forestry, biology and the oceanic, atmospheric and earth sciences, and social sciences. Research centers provide focal points for those faculty and students interested in interdisciplinary topics. The presence of state and federal agencies, such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Western Ecology Division; the U.S. Department of Agriculture; and the U.S. Forest Service provide unique opportunities for developing undergraduate and graduate research partnerships benefiting Environmental Sciences students.
The Master of Science in Environmental Sciences combines interdisciplinary coursework and research thesis or non-thesis project report. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the scientific process as they contribute to the generation of new knowledge.
