Natural Science Program at SUNY Plattsburgh

Study at the Center of a Huge Outdoor Laboratory

Photo of students conducting field research Become a professional scientist who has the commitment, knowledge, skills, and self-awareness to be a leader in your field of study. The master's in natural science offers an advanced degree with three concentration areas: biology, chemistry and environmental science. Current focus areas for the program are field biology/ecology and biochemistry.

One of the biggest assets to this program is our location. We're in a place that makes it very easy for you to ask all kinds of research questions in a wide array of fields. We are at the door step of a six million acre park that is essentially a research laboratory. And we are on the shores of a 490 square mile lake and that, too, can provide numerous opportunities for research.

Being close to Canada, especially cosmopolitan Montreal, adds a distinct international dimension to your experience. Easy access to arts and entertainment locally, in Burlington, Vermont, and in Montreal make living in the region unique, active and fulfilling. These geographic advantages augment Plattsburgh's welcoming and supportive campus community.

Work with Faculty That Are Active in Research

The program is supported by faculty from three departments and administered by the Office of the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. The most active research areas that support the program are ecology/field biology and biochemistry.
