- About Plattsburgh
Students entering the M.S. program choose a major concentration in one of three areas: environmental sciences, biology and chemistry. Within those concentrations, they can work with current faculty who are conducting research in a variety of areas. Current program strengths are in ecology/field biology and biochemistry.
The program is supported by three departments (earth and environmental sciences, biology and chemistry) and administered by the Office of the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Students have a three-member faculty committee to guide their program with a primary faculty advisor from that committee.
Requirements for admission include:
Each candidate for the degree must have a minimum 3 member graduate advisory committee including a primary advisor from a SUNY Plattsburgh science department.
An oral defense/evaluation of the thesis or the project must be completed no later than 30 days before the date for graduation. The evaluation format will be determined by the student's graduate advisory committee.
