This program is currently on hold at Penn State Harrisburg; it is not accepting new applications.
The Environmental Pollution Control programs are interdisciplinary, focused on all aspects of preventing and controlling air, water, and solid waste pollution and disposal. Students take a broad set of four core courses and then can tailor the program to match their interests with courses available in environmental science, environmental biology, environmental chemistry, policy, management and business.
The program is directed toward undergraduates from various majors with appropriate backgrounds in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics. Courses are structured so that a degree can be earned on a part-time or full-time basis. Graduates have a wide range of employment opportunities available due to the advanced technical competence they can gain through the program.
The Master of Science degree (M.S.) is for full-time students desiring to carry out extensive research and prepare a thesis. The related Master of Environmental Pollution Control degree (M.E.P.C.) program is for those with science or non-technical backgrounds and builds skills for professional practice.
Students may try a few courses on a space-available basis as non-degree students. If a student decides to apply for the master’s program, he or she may count up to 15 recent Penn State graduate credits or 10 non-Penn State graduate credits toward the degree.
Degree Conferred: M.S.
First and foremost, the best resource is the faculty. The graduate faculty have teaching and research interests in the field of environmental pollution control. They are available to help answer specific questions and problems students encounter during course work.
