Degree Requirements

Master in Environmental Metrology and Policy Program – for the Betterment of the World

Master of Science in Environmental Metrology and Policy (EMAP) Program students must successfully complete 40 credits with an average of accumulative GPA no less than 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

The EMAP Program is a two-year, 35-credit, full-time program that consists of 4 courses of 3 credits each; 12 courses of 2-credits each; a one capstone project of 1 credits that requires a comprehensive report and an oral presentation; and a seminar series. All lecture courses are scheduled after 4pm on weekdays and lab courses on Saturdays so students can have the option of pursuing the degree while still working full time and there are plenty of opportunities in the Greater Washington DC Area for the latter.

All graduate students must maintain an average accumulative GPA of no less than 3.0 (4.0 scale) to be in good standing.

A field experience is required during the first summer semester. During the ten-week field research assignment students will engage in actual field research with a research mentor. Proposed locations: primarily students will complete their research experiences at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Other governmental agencies or NGOs in the area will also serve as potential locations: USGS, NIOSH, NIH, FDA, OSHA and other locations as appropriate.
