Depending on each student's professional interests, all coursework can be taken online, or students can choose from courses offered on the MSU-Bozeman campus. Each student is assigned an advisor who will help create a personalized program of study. The 30-credit degree is designed to be completed in two years.
Students choose nine credits of restricted electives, choosing from courses such as Environmental Risk Assessment, Watershed Analysis and Landscape and Ecosystem Ecology. Students also choose 18 credits of electives, such as Microbes in the Environment, The Ecology of Plants and Plant Communities or a field capstone in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, among many others. Students complete the program with a three-credit professional paper.
The program begins Fall 2012, and students can apply now.
