The program in Environmental Science and Management is diverse and dynamic, focusing on challenges in both the outdoor and indoor environment. The Department of Environmental Science & Engineering draws upon established relationships with local industries and environmental agencies making Gannon University a regional leader in environmental quality, environmental health, and environmental management.

Two options are offered within the M.S. program: 1.) Environmental Health & Safety and 2.) Environmental Management. Graduates of the Environmental Health & Safety option have the ability to develop and implement technologies to improve and protect both environmental and human health. Many graduates are employed in areas of environmental compliance in the industry, consulting firms, or the government. Students whose career plans are management and administrative in nature may pursue the Environmental Management option. This option combines environmental science courses with business courses in order to prepare students for environmental leadership roles.
