Graduate Degree Programs
M.P.S. Environmental Management

Environmental Management combines environmental engineering science with environmental policy, social sciences, and management tools to provide breadth and perspective for the student aspiring to managerial responsibility.

Student coursework is designed to enhance technical and problem-solving skills to meet contemporary needs of environmental managers.

Program Requirements

Applicants to all ERE graduate programs of study are required to have a bachelor’s degree in science or engineering and are expected to have completed at least one 3-credit course in physics, one 3-credit course in statistics, and two 3-credit courses in calculus. Students admitted without the necessary background are required to take additional prerequisite courses required by the department.

Program prerequisite or co-requisite courses beyond the departmental requirement include at least one semester of study in at least three of the following fields: chemistry; computer science; environmental science; economics; and geographic measurements.

Program mastery courses include at least one course (3+ credit hours) in each of these areas of competence: 1) Project Management; 2) Environmental Policy; 3) Environmental Resources Engineering.
