The Master of Science in Global Environmental Studies (MSGES)
Arts & Sciences
Our Master of Science in Global Environmental Studies (MSGES) qualifies graduates with science backgrounds to understand and attack international challenges from a sustainable systems perspective, and prepares those with business backgrounds to develop intervention skills for dealing with environmental management problems.
The program features a high degree of flexibility for selecting courses suited to your career plans; an emphasis on research, data analysis, and publication ; opportunities for international collaboration; direct interaction with faculty scholars; and development of technical skills and certification. You will acquire skills certification, field experience, internships, and international/cultural training, and will be qualified for environmental technology careers, or to move forward in advanced graduate studies.
You will work directly with research faculty in a multidisciplinary department, gaining extensive hands-on experience in well-equipped laboratories. The degree program can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis.
The program includes collaboration with professors and students at the China University of Geosciences (CUG) at Wuhan, including study abroad opportunities for U.S. students, and a student exchange program for Chinese students.
The Fast Start option offers undergraduate students at Bryant the potential to complete a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Science degree at Bryant in five years. It is primarily for Environmental Science majors who can assemble 400/500 level courses to complete the program in a minimum of one additional year plus one summer, with the possibility of using the summer between the junior and senior year.
Completion of a thesis resulting from a laboratory or field research project is required. International experiences are encouraged.
