Plymouth State University (PSU) in Plymouth, NH invites applications for the MS in Environmental Science and Policy (ESP). The program focuses in areas related to watershed systems – hydrology, lake/stream biogeochemistry, conservation ecology, land use planning, climatology, etc.
Our curriculum emphasizes the relationships between science and policy, ecosystem resilience, and science communication.

Students accepted to PSU?s MS in ESP may be eligible for either graduate research assistantships (GRA) or teaching assistantships (GTA). RAs work on specific faculty research projects as they become available. TAs assist with undergraduate courses in ESP – preparing and teaching labs, organizing field expeditions, teaching a unit/module, and assisting with course management. A valid driver?s license is required for some positions.
Assistantships are available only to full-time students enrolled in the MS in ESP program. Submit applications to PSU?s Graduate Admissions. For more information about the MS in ESP, please contact the Program Coordinator, Dr. June Hammond Rowan, email@example.com.
