The program is designed to provide broad interdisciplinary training in those areas of the biological, engineering, physical, chemical, and social sciences that are important in solving environmental problems. Graduates are prepared for careers in both governmental agencies and private companies working on such problems as pollution control, environmental impact, and urban planning, and for careers in environmental education. Students can use this degree to prepare for a PhD. The College has extensive modern laboratories and computer facilities.
Thirty credits in approved courses with an average of at least 3.0 (B). The courses normally include The Biosphere and Our Species, Community Ecology, Earth Science, Applied Environmental Science, one course from an approved list of graduate courses in the social sciences, and a thesis project for a minimum of three to a maximum of six credits. The remaining 12 credits are chosen so that the concentration will be in either environmental biology or applied environmental science. Courses may be chosen from environmental science and social science courses at the College or from appropriate courses offered in graduate programs in The City University Graduate School and University Center.
