Program Highlight: Master of Science in Environmental Science and Management
The Master of Science in Environmental Science and Management is designed for individuals seeking careers in the environmental health and safety, and environmental management fields. The Department of Environmental Science and Engineering draws upon established relationships with local industries and environmental agencies, making Gannon University a regional leader in environmental quality, environmental health and environmental management. The program has recently launched a 4+1 program that allows students to complete a B.S. in Environmental Science Engineering and M.S. in Environmental Science and Management in only five years.
Students learn from faculty who hold extensive experience in their fields. Highlights of two of our accomplished faculty are below.
