Program Description:

The Master's of Science in Environmental Science (MSES) program at SPEA attracts students who are devoted to critical issues in environmental protection and motivated to apply their knowledge and passion in a broader context. SPEA offers Master's programs in environmental science with a curricular emphasis on the intersection of science and public policy. Environmental problems require strong expertise in applied physical, chemical, and biological sciences. And they also require the ability to identify, assess, and remedy questions that involve law, health and financial risks, economic and political trade-offs, and other institutional and organizational concerns. In just two years, our MSES students receive excellent preparation for continued academic study and research as well as a toolkit to affect significant environmental reform in a wide range of specializations and arenas. With four concentrations, several joint degree options, and SPEA's interdisciplinary focus, you can customize your course of study by working with SPEA's own faculty advisors. Dual programs are offered with SPEA's Master of Public Affairs, and Indiana University's School of Journalism, School of Law, and Departments of Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Geography and Geological Sciences.
