The MS in Environmental Science provides a framework for advanced study and research. A thesis is required, and students in the program may pursue any topic approved by a thesis committee. Some support for graduate students is available in the form of teaching or research assistantships.

The Professional Science Option under the MS in Environmental Science provides students with advanced training in the environmental sciences, along with professional courses aimed at preparing students for management and non-academic positions. Instead of a thesis, a required internship is an integral component of the program.
