    Environmental Analysis and Decision Making is geared to teach students rigorous methods that are needed by industrial and governmental organizations to deal with environmental issues. It is a cross-disciplinary effort incorporating courses from environmental science, earth science, statistics, chemistry, ecology and evolutionary biology, mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, chemical engineering, economics, computer science, and sociology. Graduates will be prepared with skills and knowledge valuable to environmental consulting firms, energy production companies, and government agencies. In addition to track courses, the students will take a management course, a policy and ethics course, and a seminar jointly with the students involved in the other Professional Master's Program tracks. 

    The objectives of this interdisciplinary degree are:

    • To teach quantitative skills such as statistics, remote sensing, data analysis, and modeling
    • To teach laboratory and computer skills
    • To give students the ability to anticipate problems, not just solve them
       

    Students can choose from three focus areas: Environmental Sustainability, Management and Policy, and Quantitative Decision Making.

    Students pursuing the MSEADM degree must complete:

    • A minimum of 14 courses (39 credit hours) to satisfy degree requirements.
    • A 3-6 month internship.
    • A minimum of 30 credit hours at the 500-level or above.

    CORE REQUIREMENTS

    Students must complete a total of 7 courses (18 credit hours) as listed below to satisfy the MSEADM degree's Core Requirements

    Required Science Core Courses

    Students must complete a total of 3 courses (9 credit hours) as listed below.

At the conclusion of the internship, students must present a summary of their internship project in both oral and written form as part of the professional master’s seminar. Part-time students who already work in their area of study may fulfill the internship requirements by working on an approved project with their current employer.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
