M.S. in Environmental Science with an urban focus – DePaul University

DePaul University has a MS in Environmental Science (MSES) degree focused on urban ecological restoration and conservation land management!

This graduate degree will prepare students for careers in ecological restoration, species and landscape conservation, biodiversity management, green infrastructure management and ecological consultancy. Our department’s expertise is in applied environmental science and this will bring exciting and useful training in the field of conservation land management.

Environmental Science & Studies Department faculty have disciplinary expertise in paleontology, plant-atmosphere interactions, restoration ecology, urban forestry, urban agriculture, ecological economics, soil ecology and science, urban ecology, and related fields. Students complete 13 course equivalents, with an expectation that full-time students can complete the program in two academic years. The program is housed in the McGowan South Building (LEED certified) in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, which provides a modern research infrastructure that includes laboratories, analytical facilities, environmental growth chambers, a rooftop garden, and a greenhouse.
