Environmental Sustainability

Rising sea levels, air and water pollution, and the soaring demand for energy — these and many more challenges confront policy-makers at the global, national and local levels. More and more, society turns to environmental scientists and specialists to find ways to balance human health and environmental protection with free enterprise and economic prosperity. Green growth is one of the central issues of our age.

The 33-credit Master of Science in Environmental Sustainability at LIU Post, the only degree of its kind on Long Island, is designed to educate and train professionals to develop environmentally sustainable solutions for society via multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary coursework integrating the physical and social sciences. The program centers on issues specific to the Long Island/New York metropolitan region while also considering the global context. Students in the Environmental Sustainability program will investigate the region’s diverse systems of natural environments and built infrastructures. Students will be challenged to offer sustainable long-term solutions to a range of critical environmental issues. Our key challenge is to develop resource and energy systems that advance the region’s long-term health and sustainability by developing solutions that can be implemented in partnership with government agencies, businesses, and non-profit organizations.

The M.S. in Environmental Sustainability is offered in a blended format (some courses are delivered up to half online with the remaining courses delivered face-to-face) affording students flexibility and convenience.
