The graduate program in environmental science is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on environmental issues and problems faced by metropolitan areas. The program is for individuals who are in the environmental work force, are looking to enter the environmental work force, or who are public school teachers who wish to expand their knowledge of environmental sciences of metropolitan areas so they can teach in this specialty. Program graduates are well prepared to work in the environmental consulting area; education; industry; federal, state and county environmental agencies; and nonprofit environmental groups.
As an interdisciplinary program, our faculty comes from many departments across the university. They represent a wide-range of expertise and experiences that enhance student learning and networking. Please follow this link to learn more about our faculty and their research interests.
The updated version of the Environmental Science Master's Program Handbook is now available. The ESS Internship and ESS Job pages are updated throughout the semester as we receive announcements from employers. Make sure to check it regularly, especially as you approach graduation.
When you are on an assistantship, you should register for between 5 and 7 credits of classes. If you have no past or current financial aid considerations this is all you need to do. If you are seeking deferment from past financial aid obligations or seeking current aid (i.e., obtaining a current loan) as a full-time student then you will need to contact Dr. Ownby (downby AT_TOWSON) since your teaching or research assistantship will provide the needed credits to be classified as a full-time student.
