From the effects of global warming to preserving the health of the Chesapeake Bay, environmental issues present problems informed citizens want to solve. The master’s in environmental science at Towson University will help you be part of the solution.
Our graduates are employed by environmental firms and government agencies across the region. Practitioners in the field and those looking for career changes gain opportunities with the Maryland Department of the Environment, Department of Natural Resources, and local and national private environmental companies.
The Environmental Science program is targeted to individuals with a bachelor’s degree in a related field, professionals currently working in related fields who are looking to enter the environmental work force, and educators seeking to expand their knowledge of environmental sciences in metropolitan areas so they can teach the specialty.
