Juris Doctor and ENR Program

College of Law

Masters of Arts in Environment and Natural Resources (E.N.R.)

The University of Wyoming's joint degree program combining a Juris Doctor with a Master's of Arts in Environment and Natural Resources results in students earning two degrees in three or four years. Coursework and thesis research provide exposure to interdisciplinary content, analytical tools, and program-solving skills used to address complex natural resource issues.

J.D./E.N.R. Student Handbook 

Curriculum:

The first-year curriculum is the same as that of other law students in the J.D. program. Prior to the second year, our students pair with faculty advisors to design course plans and begin taking ENR classes. Joint degree students take one or two courses outside of the law school during each semester of the second, third, and possibly fourth year. Most students will also begin to develop a master’s project immediately after admission to the E.N.R. program. Called a Plan B project, this culminating effort demonstrates the student’s understanding of interdisciplinary and applied E.N.R. concepts, particularly where those overlap with specific aspects of law and policy. The joint degree program requires completion of a minimum of 30 academic credits, including 12 or more credits in law courses and 18 or more credits in E.N.R. courses.
