Make the Division of Science your source for studies beyond the Bachelor’s degree.
The Division offers seven masters programs in Biochemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Mathematics and Physics. For our current undergraduates we have two BSMS options, Biology and Chemistry in which students can transition in their Junior year of undergraduate study. Similarly, we have four accelerated programs that operate similarly to the BSMS programs. Again, students advance to the accelerated program in their upper sophomore, lower junior semesters.

The Biology M.S. program offers a flexible curriculum for students aiming to pursue doctoral study, health professions, industry, or secondary education with areas of specialization in Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, & Behavior; Molecular, Cellular, & Developmental Biology; or Neuroscience.Candidates must either complete and defend a research thesis, or pass a comprehensive examination during the final semester of study.
Rigorous graduate level instruction and research training are offered in Analytical, Biochemical, Environmental, Inorganic, Organic, and Physical Chemistry. The curriculum is flexible and programs of study are available for students planning to go into industry, health professions, or secondary education.
EARTH AND ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES
The M.A. degree in Geology is based on the Earth Systems Science (ESS) national curriculum model, which integrates the chemical and physical principles underlying earth processes. The program offers research training in Earth Systems Science; Environmental Studies; Remote Sensing, and Geographic Information Systems.
Do you want a career in New York's financial or insurance industry? Would you like to work for high tech companies or the government, or to apply your math skills to enhancing homeland security? Are you interested in becoming a secondary ed teacher? A master's degree in math can be your entry ticket into any of these exciting professions.
The Department of Physics offers students the opportunity for study and research leading to the degree of M.A. Topics include Photonics, High Energy Physics, Condensed Matter Physics and Biophysics. A thesis is not required but students must pass a written comprehensive exam to graduate.
SUSTAINABILITY IN THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT
This innovative, interdisciplinary program draws upon emerging approaches in each of the disciplines of architecture, engineering and science, and prepares students to adapt old, and advance new generations of buildings, open spaces and urban infrastructure: water and energy resources, air quality, waste management, and transportation systems.
