Accelerated Bachelor's-Master's Degree in ESM

Incoming freshmen with a strong high school academic performance and an expressed interest in Environmental Science are eligible to join our accelerated program, which leads to the completion of both a Bachelor of Science (BS) and a Master of Science (MS) degree in five years. 

Our faculty are committed to personalizing your learning experience and employ a unique case study/problem solving approach to instruction that will incorporate close teamwork. Graduates receive extensive training in the use of modern analytical instrumentation and digital field data collection equipment in our newly renovated and equipped teaching and research laboratories.

Graduate courses are offered at our main Fairfield campus, but additional courses in the master’s program are available in Venice, Italy; Kiel, Germany; and Dingle, Ireland. The ESM program offers selective fully-paid research internships and one additional summer internship.
