Earth and Environmental Science M.S.
The graduate programs in Earth and Environmental Science are designed to enable the student to pursue further study in the various areas of the Department for professional or personal reasons, to further his/her preparation for the teaching profession, or for a career requiring advanced training.
For the arts and science student, a graduate program is designed to give opportunity for in-depth study in the broad field of Earth and Environmental Science. The program provides sufficient flexibility through electives so that emphasis in one of the following areas is possible:
- environmental geology,
- metamorphic and igneous geology,
- sedimentology, stratigraphy, and paleobiology or
- oceanography and marine geology
Most of the courses for the oceanography and marine geology emphasis will be taken at the various sites of the New Jersey Marine Science Consortium during the summer.
