Your MSES degree offers a chance to collaborate with faculty for professional publication
Small class sizes at Alaska Pacific University allow you to work closely with Environmental Science faculty as you complete your thesis. By adapting your research into a co-authored professional article, you’ll join MSES graduates whose theses were published or are under consideration by peer-reviewed scientific journals seen by researchers in your field.
A sampling of recent student-faculty collaborations is here. Students’ names are in boldface type; Earth Science Associate Professor Mike Loso is co-author.
