The Master of Environmental Science is a one to two to three-year master’s degree in environmental science, the study of the environment and solutions to environmental problems.
Curricula include work in scientific fields such as biology, ecology, physics, and geology, as well as fields in the humanities such as economics, business, and sociology.
Some schools offer concentrations that emphasize the social science qualities of the field and include environmental policy and environmental management.
Master’s programs in environmental science generally require a thesis, a piece of independent original research.
Tuition for environmental science programs starts at $20,000 USD per academic year, although partial merit scholarships are available for high performing international students based on IELTS (6.5+) and TOEFL (90+) exam scores as well as CGPA and GRE (300+) or GMAT (550+) exam scores.
Many programs incorporate training and practical experience, in the form of research projects, presentations, lab work, and OPT and CPT opportunities.
