Haub School students study a map on the island of Tenerife during the ENR Capstone Course in 2011.
The Haub School's Environment and Natural Resources graduate degree is a unique concurrent major: all graduate students choose a primary focus in any other department on campus offering graduate degrees. The program gives students the opportunity to add to their traditional graduate program knowledge about the human, policy, legal, and scientific elements of today's most complex environmental and natural resource challenges. Graduate students earn any of the following degrees:
- Master's level major or minor in environment and natural resources
- Doctoral minor in environment and natural resources
- JD/MA in environment and natural resources from the Haub School and the UW College of Law
If you elect to earn the major at the master's level, your degree will indicate that you earned the "Master of _______ in (Primary Program)/Environment and Natural Resources." For example, a student could earn a Master of Science in Geology/Environment and Natural Resources or a Master of Arts in American Studies/Environment and Natural Resources, etc. A student jointly admitted to the College of Law and the Haub School will earn the Juris Doctor/Master of Arts in Environment and Natural Resources.
Haub School students are diverse. They pursue studies in fields ranging from creative writing to botany to civil engineering, from any one of the seven UW colleges. Our curriculum model allows flexibility in order to accommodate the unique educational needs and goals of students representing a distinct range of backgrounds.
ENR emphasizes interdisciplinary approaches to problem-solving, collaborative process, and multi-perspective analysis of nebulous issues. That means that the ENR classroom is a dynamic place, where unique collections of people gather for small and lively discussions and where work is often tackled by interdisciplinary teams. Our aim is to provide the kind of innovative pedagogy that simulates working in a complex world.
