School of the Environment
School of the Environment faculty value the importance of preparing our M.S. graduates to collaborate at the cutting edges of both disciplinary research as well as cross sector scholarship. We provide opportunities for innovative scientific inquiry, and training that supports flexibility and resilience required for work in agencies, consulting and futures in PhD programs. Our students are financially supported through research assistantships and teaching assistantships that cover tuition, health insurance and a living stipend. We also have multiple opportunities for scholarships.
The MS degree in Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary program with the flexibility for elective classes in the student’s own area of specialization. In consultation with their advisor, students may select classes from a wide variety of areas (i.e., ecosystem science and management, ecological planning, land and water conservation, air quality management, water quality management, energy and carbon policy, etc.). Most students conclude their MS studies with a thesis, where the goal is a publishable contribution. The requirements are given below and are subject to completion after entering the masters program.
