The MS in Environmental Science emphasizes the fundamental science and regulatory framework of the environmental field, while broadly addressing analysis and design of both technological and management-oriented solutions to environmental problems. A minimum of 30 term-credit hours beyond the baccalaureate degree is required. For full-time graduate students, 6 term-credit hours may involve research and completion of a Master's thesis, with approval from the student's advisor, with an additional 24 term-credit hours of course work. The program also has the flexibility to meet the needs of part-time students, already working in industry, who typically take the non-thesis route requiring 30 term-credit hours of course work. All environmental graduate courses are offered with evening class times, and via distance learning, to accommodate the busy schedules of working professionals.
