Law and Environment and Natural Resources (ENR)

JD/MA

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


Courses

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.
