The Great Lakes Center administers two interdisciplinary applied environmental science programs in Great Lakes Environmental Science (GLES), a thesis-based Master of Arts (M.A.) and an internship-based Professional Science Master’s (PSM) Master of Science (M.S.) program. Both programs are designed to provide students with the opportunity to attain a broad understanding of the physical, chemical, biological, and social factors that comprise the Great Lakes ecosystem. The programs currently have a job placement rate near 90% and GLES M.A. and M.S. graduates are working for both public and private environmental science organizations.
Funding is available through one Graduate Assistant (GA) appointment starting in the 2019-2020 academic year. GA lines are preferentially awarded to students in the M.A. program. The GA appointment includes an in-state tuition scholarship (up to 9 credits per semester) and a $7,500 stipend and is renewable for a second year if the student is making satisfactory academic progress. Graduate applications must be received by April 1 to be considered for GA funding.
More information about the GLES programs, including information on how to apply, can be found in the GLES section of the GLC website.
