Our program integrates scientific, technical, regulatory, and public policy knowledge across a range of environmental issues. Graduates from the program are able to assess, analyze, and manage issues from both a theoretical and practical point of view.
The program consists of 13 courses (two units each) and a master's project (four units) for a total of 30 units. There are four required courses: Ecology, Environmental Chemistry, Quantitative Methods, and the master's project. Each student — in consultation with a faculty adviser — develops a program of study for the remaining courses that best suits their desires for professional and intellectual development. Students typically take four courses per semester. Classes are offered on Saturdays and weekday evenings to allow students to work full-time while earning their degree.
