The 30-credit hour study option requires internship experience with partners like the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Adirondack Park Agency, as well as with private industry.
Students must take nine credit hours in leadership skills and 15 in graduate science coursework (biology and environmental science) in addition to six internship credits.
Requirements for entry include:
SUNY Plattsburgh is situated near Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Park — the largest state-level protected area in the United States. Students at the college also have access to the William H. Miner Institute, an 8,600-acre “lab” of farmland and Adirondack wilderness
"These natural resources allow the college to offer unique experiences to environmental science students," said Department Chair Robert Fuller. "In addition, the college has a faculty-to-student ratio of 16 to one, helping to ensure that students receive personal attention they need from their teachers, 90 percent of whom, hold the highest degree in their field."
