JD MA in Environment & Natural Resources at UW

Law and Environment and Natural Resources (ENR)


JDMA in law and environment and natural resources (ENR)

Law students accepted into the University of Wyoming are invited to add a joint master of arts in environment and natural resources to their degree program. JD/MA law and ENR students collaborate across campus to practice critical thinking and collaborative problem solving for natural resource challenges. You'll take on a Plan B thesis project to study and write about an environment and natural resources challenge of your choice. You'll also learn with Haub School graduate students who bring expertise from a range of UW departments to the classroom in the ENR capstone course.

A joint JD/MA in law and environment and natural resources from the Haub School emphasizes development of essential skills:

        • Communication (written and spoken)

        • Critical thinking

        • Collaborative problem-solving


You’ll take 6 credits of ENR core courses to learn how to assess and problem solve for natural resource challenges. You’ll also take 9 credits of distribution courses in human dimensions, science and engineering, and quantitative/qualitative methods. You must also complete 12 credits of environment and natural resources law courses and a for-credit internship. Finally, you will undertake a research project of your design resulting in a Plan B Thesis and presentation. Click below to view the course plan.
