Master of Science in Environmental Studies
The Master of Science in Environmental Studies program (MES) prepares students to deal with the complex nature of environmental issues through an interdisciplinary approach that capitalizes on the unique faculty and research strengths of The Graduate School of the College of Charleston. The faculty contributes through policy sciences, mathematics and the natural and physical science areas of biology, geology and physics. In addition, we offer a dual master’s degree with the Master’s of Public Administration Program and a Peace Corps Master's International program.
The MES program provides students with an appreciation of the interdisciplinary nature of environmental problems without sacrificing the training rigor of a specific academic discipline. The interdisciplinary emphasis is established through a carefully designed set of required courses that provide students with an understanding of environmental issues. The MES curriculum addresses these issues by teaching students the principles of basic scientific research; by giving students the tools to evaluate the potential environmental risks; and by helping students examine the role of public policy in
environmental decision making.
