Kentucky State University’s Master of Science in Environmental Studies trains leaders to understand and solve environmental problems by applying critical thinking skills across disciplines.
Learning to restore a balance between humanity and our changing environment will be among the biggest challenges of coming years. It will require an understanding of the interaction between ecology, sociology, economics, and other disciplines. Kentucky State University’s Master of Science in Environmental Studies enables graduates to develop specific areas of expertise and communicate across disciplines to address environmental issues. The program is intended for students seeking meaningful employment with a commitment to human values.
The program is a coordinated by the College of Agriculture, Food Science, and Sustainable Systems. Many of the core faculty have appointments in this College. As such, the program emphasizes the agricultural interface between humans and the environment. Developing more sustainable agriculture and food systems is crucial to solving environmental problems.
Applications are currently being accepted for the Spring 2015 semester. Assistant-ships are available for full-time graduate students completing thesis projects.
