Environmental Science Masters Program
Few universities throughout the New York metropolitan region -- or the nation -- offer both focused and applied training that you will find in the Masters in Environmental Science Program at Pace University. By combining science and policy courses, you will gain the expertise necessary to envision solutions to the many environmental challenges that we face now and in the future.
Our multidisciplinary program provides you with core knowledge of basic environmental concepts and the opportunity to develop advanced skills and expertise in a broad range of subject areas. The curriculum blends a number of disciplines, allowing you to examine environmental issues from scientific, ethical, and legal perspectives, and identify and apply solutions to a variety of environmental problems.
In our Environmental Science Masters program, you will benefit from faculty on the leading edge of the latest environmental, scientific, and policy trends, who understand the dynamic nature of their fields. Their insight and expertise help you to bridge concepts you learn in the classroom to real-world applications.
The Master of Science (M.S.) in Environmental Science degree program, offered on Pace University’s Pleasantville campus, prepares you for further graduate study or provides you with advanced training in a specialized area of environmental science to further careers in environmental consulting, environmental regulation and assessment, governmental agencies, and private foundations. The program also equips secondary school teachers with the appropriate background in order to introduce environmental science into their school’s curriculum or teach AP environmental science courses.
The flexible curriculum provides students with a broad perspective on environmental issues. The curriculum is individualized to accommodate diverse areas of specialization, including conservation biology, wildlife management, aquatic ecology, endangered species protection, geographical information systems, toxicology, and renewable energy. Research is an integral part of the program. You can perform your research in our state-of-the-art Dyson Hall of Science laboratories or in the field, nationally or internationally.
The 33-credit Master of Science in Environmental Science program may be completed in two years of full-time study or on a part-time basis. Most classes are held in the late afternoon or evening. Please refer to website for a full list of participating faculty.
