Graduate work leading to the M.S. degree in Environmental Geology is offered in Newark for full- and part-time students in collaboration with the Department of Geological Sciences at Rutgers-New Brunswick and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at NJIT.
Students enrolled in the M.S. Program in Environmental Geology at Rutgers-Newark may elect a thesis option (24 credits of course work plus 6 credits of thesis research) or a non-thesis option (36 credits of course work plus a final comprehensive written examination) and will be required to take a minimum of 15 graduate credits at Rutgers-Newark from among graduate courses in Environmental Geology, Seminar in Environmental Geology, Analytical Methods in Environmental Geology, Hydrogeology, Environmental Geophysics, Soil Geochemistry and Geomorphology.
