To be considered for the MENV program, students must have a four-year bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. institution or the international equivalent. We recommend a minimum of one year of professional experience or applicable training prior to applying. The MENV program selects students who we believe will achieve academic and professional success while adding value to the graduate community. The MENV selects the most talented and diverse candidates through a holistic review of the application materials. Decisions are based on academic and professional backgrounds, as well as individuals' potential to contribute both inside and outside of the classroom. As a cohort-based program, the MENV program requires that students successfully enroll in and complete a minimum of two courses per semester. As per the University of Colorado Boulder's Graduate School policy, all master's degrees must be completed within four years.
