Pursuit of the MS degree in Environmental Science provides students with research and education opportunities in environmental protection and remediation and in plant growth and physiology. Students will select graduate course work in soil science, biology, and environmentally related courses taught in departments across the campus. Those completing program requirements will be well prepared for employment in environmental science positions at the state and federal level, teaching at the junior college level, and continued graduate studies for the PhD. Their research and teaching interests include: environmental toxicology, pollination biology, improvement in teaching undergraduates in biology, plant growth under environmental stress, invasive species, plant physiology, urban landscape environments, bioremediation of contaminated soils and water, and both modern and ancient agricultural environments.
