MS in Environmental Science & Policy Graduate Assistantships

Plymouth State University, Plymouth, NH, is inviting applications for its MS program in Environmental Science and Policy (ESP).

We offer expertise in areas such as watershed ecosystems, hydrology, climate change, ecological economics, landscape ecology, and land use planning. Our curriculum emphasizes the relationships between science and policy, decision making for social and ecological sustainability and resilience, and science communication. Students in the program often collaborate with interdisciplinary teams of faculty, students, and scientists from other academic, governmental, and NGOs including Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, White Mountain National Forest, NH Department of Environmental Services, Appalachian Mountain Club, and the Squam Lakes Association.

Students accepted to PSU=92s MS in ESP may be eligible for either graduate research assistantships (GRA) or teaching assistantships (GTA). GRAs will work on specific faculty research projects as they become available. GTAs will assist with undergraduate courses in ESP – preparing and teaching labs, organizing field expeditions, teaching a unit/module, and leading study groups. A valid US driver=92s license is required.

Assistantships are available only to full-time students enrolled in the MS in ESP program. Submit applications to PSU=92s Graduate Studies. For more information about the MS in ESP, please contact Program Coordinator, Shannon Rogers,
