Webster University Now Offering MS in Environmental Management Online
Webster University’s College of Arts and Sciences will now offer its Master of Science (MS) in Environmental Management degree in an online format beginning this June.
Webster University designed the online MS in Environmental Management program to provide students with the tools and techniques to navigate the business aspects of environmental management. Students learn to assess and convey the business, ethical and legal information to those who make or are affected by the decisions that shape our natural resources and environment. The prerequisite for the program is a bachelor’s degree.
Upon completion of the program, students should be able to:
• Understand the important terminology, facts, concepts, principles, and theories used in the environmental management field
• Manage environmental-related risk
• Conduct an environmental audit
• Hire technically skilled employees and consultants
• Research and analyze environmental regulations
• Make sound management decisions based on environmental and scientific data
• Conduct environmental research
“Course work for this degree has been designed to give environmental managers the knowledge they need to succeed in a vitally important field,” said David Carl Wilson, dean of the College of Arts & Sciences. “And the fact that all classes are conducted online means students can continue working while they learn—wherever they live.”
