AUNE’s Environmental Studies Master’s Programs Earn PSM Designation

The two master’s degree programs in Antioch University New England’s (AUNE) Department of Environmental Studies Resource Management and Conservation (RMC), and Environmental Studies have been approved for affiliation as Professional Science Master’s (PSM) degree programs by the Council of Graduate Schools.

Students in any of the programs can choose to follow the PSM track of studies or the non-PSM track of studies.

“The PSM degree recognition by the Council of Graduates Schools confirms that our master degree programs in Environmental Studies and Resource Management and Conservation effectively train our students to be both scholars and practitioners,” said Jim Gruber, core faculty member and director of the RMC and SDCC programs. “Both are critical for our graduates to be able to able move into their future chosen professional careers and to become leaders in their fields.”

AUNE’s programs are the only ones in New Hampshire that have received the PSM designation. There are 277 PSM programs in 123 institutions across the United States. Eleven of those institutions are in New England, including AUNE.

The national PSM degree program was started in 1997, with support from the Alfred B. Sloan Foundation, to help meet the demand for leaders in science- and math-related fields. PSM programs combine intensive education in advanced sciences and mathematics with training in professional business skills, such as marketing, communications, and regulatory affairs.
