- Program Description:
The Professional Science Master’s (PSM) in Environmental Science offers working professionals and qualified undergraduates an education that is multidisciplinary and applications-oriented, preparing graduates for professional advancement in the business and regulatory world.
The PSM is built around a solid core of required technical and nontechnical courses that provide common baseline knowledge for all students. This core is supplemented by a broad selection of electives tailored to an individual’s specialty area. In combination, the core and associated electives form a curriculum that can easily adapt to the needs of individual students. A capstone research project in collaboration with a faculty mentor and a professional in the corporate or government sector allows students to apply their coursework and experience to real-world problems.
The PSM in Environmental Science program is structured to be completed in two years and emphasizes substantial flexibility in course scheduling (night classes, weekend and summer field work). Undergraduate students interested in a five-year BS/ PSM accelerated dual degree option can pursue that option; undergraduate transfer students may also apply for the dual degree with their transfer application.
The program requires 36 credits for completion, including a capstone project. The curriculum consists of eight core course requirements and four electives. Core course requirements include five science courses, two professional courses and a capstone project. The entire core course sequence will be offered within two years during the Fall, Spring and Summer terms. The remainder of the curriculum consists of electives, at least five of which are offered over a two-year sequence.
Students meet regularly with their assigned advisor to plan and evaluate progress in their studies
