As an ENR graduate student, you will take classes and conduct research in wide ranging areas of environmental significance, such as cultural studies, ecology, economics, law and politics, and management. Your ENR core courses will complement those studies by providing interdisciplinary perspective and problem-solving approaches. You will collaborate and learn with students of diverse disciplinary training, backgrounds, and aspirations to critically evaluate the multiple dimensions of complex environmental challenges.
The graduate major in ENR prepares you to:
Think across disciplines when addressing environmental challenges
Understand environmental challenges from diverse perspectives
Collaborate on practical solutions to environmental challenges
At the beginning of your studies, you will select a suite of approved ENR elective courses that span disciplinary perspectives outside your primary area of study. You will also compose a narrative justification outlining how your selected courses meet your professional and academic interests and embody the goals of the ENR program.
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 electives to round out your understanding of cultures and values, economics, environmental management, science, and/or policy as they relate to environment and natural resource issues.
