The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (DEES) at Rutgers University-Newark offers the master of science (M.S.) degree in environmental geology in collaboration with the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Rutgers University-New Brunswick and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). For current and complete information about the program and regulations governing it, contact the director of the graduate program at 973-353-5100.

Students enrolled in the M.S. program in environmental geology at Rutgers-Newark choose between two plans. The thesis option involves 24 credits of coursework and 6 credits of thesis research. Under the nonthesis option, students complete 30 credits of coursework. In either case, students are required to take a minimum of 15 graduate credits at Rutgers Newark from among graduate courses offered.

They choose the remaining credits from among all graduate courses offered by DEES, the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Rutgers-New Brunswick, or from selected graduate courses at the NJIT Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Thesis research is expected to involve environmental aspects in such geologic disciplines as geochemistry, geophysics, hydrogeology, geomorphology, structural geology, mineralogy-petrology, and sedimentation-stratigraphy.

A certificate in environmental geology at Rutgers-Newark will be offered to graduate students admitted to the Rutgers-New Brunswick graduate programs in geological sciences. Students admitted to the NJIT Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate programs or to other NJIT environmental science or engineering graduate programs also are eligible for the certificate. Students seeking the certificate in environmental geology must successfully complete 9 credits from among the graduate courses offered at Rutgers-Newark.
