Environmental Sciences is a multidisciplinary study of the natural/physical environment. Academic fields involved in environmental sciences include chemistry, biology and ecology, physics, geology, geography, anthropology, engineering, political science, law, economics and health sciences. Students planning to pursue the MS in Environmental Sciences must either have earned a bachelor’s degree or have taken significant course work in natural/physical sciences or engineering and completed several other prerequisites.
Environmental careers encompass a broad range of professions, from those with a strong foundation in the natural/physical sciences or engineering to those based in the social sciences and/or humanities. Students interested in environmental issues and careers should investigate the whole field before deciding which path to follow. At CU Denver, the MS in Environmental Sciences emphasizes the natural/physical sciences and engineering with the addition of social sciences and humanities.
The MS in Environmental Sciences degree is designed to provide training in engineering, natural/physical sciences, and social sciences. The goals of the program are:
1. To enhance the interdisciplinary communication and analytical skills of the student, and
2. To provide a multidisciplinary approach for more intensive study of a particular environmental issue.
