Master’s of Science in Earth and Environmental Sciences
This degree is part of a multidisciplinary program. In addition to courses in chemistry and geology, there are required courses in public administration, health sciences, geography, and either economics or information science. Electives are available in these departments as well as biology and management. Students are admitted from numerous backgrounds, but generally with bachelor's degrees in some scientific field such as chemistry, biology, or environmental science. The PSM degree is meant to combine non-science "professional" courses with science courses and is considered a terminal, non-thesis degree. In lieu of a thesis, a combination of an internship and a project is required for graduation.
