The M.A. and M.S. graduate programs in SF State's Geography & Environment meet the academic needs of individuals seeking careers in environmental management and policy, urban and regional planning, Geographic Information Science (GIS/remote sensing) or as academics at the community college level, as well as students who wish to pursue doctoral studies elsewhere. Our programs support international and local field research on a wide range of topics related to faculty expertise. Together these provide multiple perspectives and tools to understand the relationships between people and their environments, and solve problems related to local and global change. The graduate programs support international and field research on a wide range of topics related to faculty expertise.
RIP TIDES MS in Marine Science provides students with in-depth training in interdisciplinary science research, technology, communication and teaching skills, professional internship experience, career development workshops and dedicated program advising. This two-year program prepares students for leadership in a variety of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) related professions, to solve the critical challenges facing urbanized coastal ecosystems in a time of rapid global change.
This concentration is designed for students aiming to go on to Ph.D. programs or enter the workplace in fields such as systematics, evolution, conservation, population genetics, genomics, behavior of organisms; community, population, reproductive, physiological, and evolutionary ecology; taxonomy, biodiversity, and biogeography.

The Sustainable Business concentration provides students with skills to address environmental and social dimensions of conducting business in a global market.
The program emphasizes four aspects of sustainable business that improve a firm's long-term performance:
managing risks (regulatory, reputation, litigation, market)
recognizing market opportunities created by environmental and social challenges, and
applying innovation tools and concepts to meet unmet needs.
Students in the program learn how to articulate the business case for sustainability; develop innovative products and services; lead internal and external coalitions needed to drive organizational change; and implement metrics to measure progress and provide accountability.
Issues related to limited energy resources, energy efficiency and conservation, and renewable energy, as well as the effects of ever-increasing energy production and consumption are prompting a significant surge in the need for professionals with an advanced education in energy systems.
A newly developed concentration area for the SFSU Master of Science in Engineering degree addresses this rising demand for energy professionals. The Energy Systems concentration area includes coursework in:
Energy Resources and Sustainability
Renewable Energy Systems
Energy Auditing, Measurement and Verification
Research areas for program faculty include industrial energy efficiency, advanced materials for solar cells, internal combustion engines, energy and emissions life-cycle analyses, and energy storage.
The Structural and Earthquake Engineering master’s degree program at the School of Engineering focuses on research and design studies towards resilient and sustainable civil engineering infrastructure.
The coursework includes Principles of Earthquake Engineering, Advanced Concrete Structures, Advanced Steel Structures, Structural Design for Earthquakes, Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering, Advanced Topics in Seismic Engineering, Advanced Topics in Structural Engineering, Bridge Engineering and Prestressed Concrete, and Structural Design for Fire Safety.
Students completing the master’s program at SFSU are prepared for professional practice and for doctoral study in structural engineering. Students can conduct research activities using state-of-the-art laboratory equipment.
