M.S. Admission Requirements

To be admitted to the M.S. degree program in Environmental Science and Technology, a student must:

1) Have earned a B.S. degree in a related field;

2) Have achieved an undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher;

3) Have completed courses to fulfill the Basic Science Requirement;

To meet the basic science requirement, a student must have completed a minimum of one semester of Calculus and a total of at least 20 credits in some combination of Chemistry, Physics, Biology or Mathematics (beyond Calculus I). Although courses in other areas of Science and Engineering may be helpful, they do not count toward the basic science requirement. If otherwise competitive students are within three credits of meeting the basic science requirement, they may in some cases be admitted on a provisional basis.

4) Have achieved competitive scores on the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) General Test.
