Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Antioch University New England

Program Overview

Students in AUNE’s Master’s of Science in Environmental Studies program can choose to follow the Professional Science Master’s (PSM) study track by completing their requirements as follows:

Students must take all the required courses for their concentration, making sure that they meet the credit breakdown below. Courses must be tracked with an advisor on an Environmental Studies Master’s Academic Advising Form. PSM requirement courses can be fulfilled by the courses students take to meet their 36 credit Master’s Candidacy requirement. Should students schedule their methods such that they have 36 credits but have not met the PSM requirement, they may take additional courses if they wish to qualify for the PSM designation.

Under the PSM designation, The Council of Graduate Schools considers STEM courses to be graduate courses that develop student skills in science, technology, engineering, and math.
