Learning to restore a balance between humanity and our changing environment will be among the biggest challenges of coming years. It will require an understanding of the interaction between ecology, sociology, economics, and other disciplines.
Kentucky State University’s Masters of Environmental Studies will enable graduates to develop specific areas of expertise and communicate across disciplines to address environmental issues. The program will appeal to students seeking meaningful employment with a commitment to human values.
The degree is a collaborative effort among KSU’s Division of Mathematics and Sciences, Land Grant Program, Division of Literature, Languages, & Philosophy, and Whitney Young School of Honors and Liberal Studies.
Students will have opportunities to study:
- alternative energy,
- aquatic, terrestrial, and wetland ecosystems
- ecological and environmental economics
- ecological modeling
- environmental degradation
- population and community ecology
- regional ecology
- sustainable agriculture
- water and air pollution
- waste management
