From its inception, the Master of Science Program in Environmental Science and Biology has identified itself with "promoting teaching and research in the study of the earth and environments." With graduate faculty in the fields of environmental science, biology, geology, chemistry, and the earth sciences, the Environmental Sciences Program at The College at Brockport spans a broad array of subjects focusing on the earth, its environments, human activities, and the linkages between them through a foundation of rigorous science and dedication to wise use of natural resources. The purpose of the ES Graduate Program is to develop scientists who will be able to analyze and understand environmental systems, predict environmental change, and participate in the management of the environment. Each student in program conducts research and completes a thesis; develops depth in a specific academic area through the completion of focused course work; and develops essentials skills in statistics, geographical information systems, science writing and public speaking. Upon completing their degrees, students will be prepared to conduct research in national research laboratories, field stations, PhD programs in universities, as well as institutes and corporations in the private sector. Graduates may find careers in federal, state and local government agencies that are charged with managing natural resources and employment in the private sector with productive careers in industry and consulting firms.
