The Master of Science in Environmental Management is designed for graduate students and working professionals who seek or hold careers in the environmental field.
The goal of this science-based, management program is to enhance and broaden the skills and knowledge necessary to meet the demands and changes of the environmental marketplace - in industry, government and public agencies, nonprofit and non-governmental organizations and the consulting sector.
The University of San Francisco founded its Master of Science in Environmental Management program nearly 35 years ago. Since then, over 700 graduates have received quality education and training as environmental managers from the program and have established a wide variety of environmental careers at organizations in the United States and throughout the world. The program is offered at USF's main campus in San Francisco.
