The Master’s program in Environmental Studies is a broadly based interdisciplinary program that focuses on human interaction with the environment. The program is geared for students entering or seeking to advance in the rapidly expanding environmental field. Because the scale and scope of environmental issues varies from local and practical to international and theoretical, the program seeks to integrate knowledge and approaches from a range of related disciplines in the sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities. Topics include sustainability, environmental policy, management, health, pollution, law, philosophy, economics, planning, regulation and education. Given the range of their academic backgrounds, students are encouraged to craft a study plan that meets their own particular career or vocational goals. Students demonstrate their expertise in one of the environmental concentrations by preparing a thesis or project.

The Master of Science in Environmental Engineering is an online engineering master degree that will educate and prepare the future leaders in environmentally related fields. This program will provide students with practical information and technical knowledge on contemporary environmental topics and issues including potable water treatment, wastewater treatment and disposal, water reclamation and reuse, storm water runoff management and treatment, solid and hazardous waste management, remediation of contaminated groundwater and soil, landfill design, air pollution control engineering, global warming issues, and sustainable development.

In addition, a Professional Science Master's Degree Program in Sustainability is under development through the 2012-2013 University Missions and Goals Initiatives.
