Environmental Geosciences, PSM
The Professional Science Master’s (PSM) in Environmental Geosciences is a new and innovative interdisciplinary graduate degree certified by the Council of Graduate Schools through the Professional Science Master’s Association. The PSM allows you to pursue advanced scientific training while developing highly valued professional work-place skills. A three-credit internship with a STEM-related company or agency is required. PSM programs prepare students for high-level careers in science emphasizing on skill areas such as communication, management, policy and entrepreneurship. PSM graduates are expected to progress toward leadership roles.
- Applications for admission are accepted on a rolling basis. However, early application is recommended. In order to have sufficient time for course and programming planning, moving, and logistical needs, at least two months ahead of classes starting for any particular semester is needed. For International students who need documents or for students seeking any form of financial assistance, four to six months of lead time is advisable.
Applicants must apply to the University of Northern Colorado Graduate School before the program area reviews the applicant’s request for admission. To apply, submit the following materials in a single packet along with the application fee. Failure to submit all required materials will delay the evaluation and screening of your application.
- Completed (or in the last semester of) a bachelor's degree with a minimum GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale). A strong STEM (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics) background or aptitude is necessary to demonstrate basic competencies necessary to be successful in this graduate program.
