Environmental Information Science

The concentration offers interdisciplinary study in geospatial environmental information systems to advance our understanding of biophysical processes and the sustainable development and management of Earth resources.

Environmental Management (M.P.S. only)

Worldwide the growing complexity and diversity of systems and issues in the environmental sciences offer challenging opportunities for persons with appropriate skills, experience, and educational backgrounds. The Environmental Management Concentration is designed for persons who want to prepare for these opportunities, but are not interested in research careers. Persons already embarked on professional careers, those who plan to continue in their current fields or related ones, or those who will be working primarily as educators often select this program. The Master of Professional Studies (M.P.S.) program in the Environmental Management Concentration emphasizes breadth of training via course work rather than research experience. Students in this program take the same courses as other graduate students and then complete a problem-solving or applied project.

Requirements for the M.P.S. (Agr.) degree include:

  1. Satisfactory completion of a minimum of 30 credit hours, with a minimum grade point average of 2.5
  2. Completion of a minimum of 2 units of residence credit
  3. Satisfactory completion of a problem-solving project
