ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Master of Science in Environmental Science degree at UTC began in 1997. The program provides students with a sound scientific technical background coupled with an understanding of contemporary socioeconomic, political, and legal realities. Students develop oral and written communication skills for assuming leadership roles in a wide variety of interdisciplinary professional settings.
To earn the M.S. degree, students must successfully complete 38 semester hours, including 14 hours of core courses, 3-6 hours of major project, and 18-21 hours of electives. An unusual aspect of the program is that students may select to do an internship as their major project, rather than a thesis. Roughly half of students write a thesis and about half participate in internships. Presently there are 45 students enrolled in the program.
