The Masters of the Environment Graduate Program prepares students for a wide range of professional careers in conservation, consulting, energy, natural resources, planning, policy, sustainability, and more. Students take courses that equip them to address real-world environmental challenges and to understand how various community partners can be engaged effectively in the decision-making process. Through the Capstone Project, students also gain a year of professional experience with an external organization while in the program. 


The Masters of the Environment graduate program is a 48-credit-hour program that usually takes students 21 months to complete. MENV is a professional master's degree meaning students work in a cohort-based model under a Specialization Lead. 

Students take one core course, four specialization courses, and 24 credit-hours worth of electives (18 credit-hours in MENV and 6 credit-hours either within MENV or other campus departments) and work on a 9-month Capstone Project to earn their degree.
