About this program

MSc in Environmental Quality Sciences

The Master of Science in Environmental Quality Sciences prepares students to address the challenges of global environmental issues: development of alternative water and energy resources, water and soil pollution treatment, waste recycling, agricultural intensification, environmentally-sustainable pest control and plant protection, and related economics.

The multidisciplinary program is taught by academic staff from the Robert H. Smith Faculty's Environmental Quality and Natural Resources in Agriculture department and the Agricultural Research Center's Volcani Institute. The courses cover broad areas of scientific research, such as: environmental microbiology, ecology, soil and water, economics, weed control, botany and plant protection.
