The Environmental Science MS program allows students to chose from two customizable tracks: the Thesis Track, and the Professional Science Master's (PSM) Track. The thesis option culminates in a thesis dissertation, while the PSM option culminates in a professional internship with a local organization. The two options share a common base of coursework.

The Thesis Option provides students with an opportunity to complete an applied scientific research project within the context of an environmental issue.

Typically, Thesis students graduate in 3.5 years.
