Environmental Management 

The MPS and AGC programs in Environmental Management are designed to prepare professionals to confront the complex problems and issues related to environmental management. The curriculum provides the educational background necessary to make informed decisions on often controversial matters. The program is offered in collaboration with Stony Brook's world-renowned School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences. It primarily serves adults who seek professional development on a part-time basis. Courses are offered in the evening and several are available online.

The programs offer:

  • access to the most current expertise in environmental management
  • foundations for effective career or public service initiatives
  • sustainable solutions that promote the environmental and economic welfare of the region

Master of Professional Studies

The 30-credit Master of Professional Studies (MPS) explores the application of research and experience to complex social, political and environmental issues. The core curriculum focuses on the theoretical structure and methodology of social science disciplines and their application to the professions, while the concentration courses  focus on the scientific, managerial and legal that pertain to the field. The degree culminates in a capstone project.

Advanced Graduate Certificate

The 18-credit advanced graduate certificate program focuses solely on the environmental management subject areas, without the capstone course or the courses in social science theory and methodology.
