University of Findlay has been recognized for having one of the Best Online Master’s in Environmental & Sustainability Management for 2021. The online Master of Science (MS) in Environmental, Safety, and Health Management was ranked 10th out of 15 higher education institutions by Great Business Schools.
The Great Business Schools website noted UF’s program is, “one of the best online sustainability master’s programs, thanks to the emphasis on leadership in the environmental sector,” as it prepares students to meet occupational health, science, and environmental policy goals.
“UF’s Master’s in Environmental, Safety, and Health Management was built on the strong foundation of our undergraduate degree,” said Jeffrey L. Frye, Ph.D., dean of the college of sciences. “The faculty who built that strong undergraduate degree had varied backgrounds, cutting across government and private sector experiences. Students graduating from the program were well prepared due to the diversity of expertise of the faculty.”
Online degrees are an excellent opportunity for working professionals to invest in their education while maintaining employment and balancing an already busy schedule. Frye noted, “initially, the master’s program was offered only in a face-to-face format and most of the students were actively working in EHS careers. In order to better accommodate these working individuals, the decision was made to also offer the program through an online modality.
Great Business Schools stated they “researched only accredited, trusted institutions for the ranking of the best environmental master’s programs. Schools are ranked according to tuition rate, reputation, and potential salary, using data from IPEDS and Niche.” UF was ranked well for guaranteeing students a quality education at affordable rates. The quality of education students receive is evidenced by the 100% job placement rate after graduation.
“It is great to see UF’s master’s program, which grew from such a strong and unique background, has been ranked as one of the best online programs,” said Frye. “This is a great recognition of the hard work of the faculty who laid the foundations of the graduate degree and of those who have continued to cultivate and improve the program.”
Along with offering the MS courses online, UF also has on-campus and hybrid options for many programs so students can choose what best fits their learning style.
