Professional Masters (MENR)

The Master of Environment and Natural Resources (MENR) is an applied graduate degree for practicing professionals and others who want to enhance their professional competency in environmental and natural resource science and management. The MENR is a separate program from the Master of Science for students seeking a theory-into-practice orientation that does not require a thesis. The MENR provides a rigorous but flexible program, creating valuable educational and training experiences for persons planning for or already engaged in professional careers in environmental or natural resources management, administration, planning, or education.

Students in the MENR program can extend their breadth and depth of knowledge and expertise in environmental and natural resource science and management beyond that acquired during bachelor’s degree programs and at the same time improve their professional skills, enhance their network of experience, and gain additional experience with professional practice.

Master of Environment and Natural Resources (MENR) is a non-thesis degree that is appealing both to individuals already working in the field of environment and natural resources who are seeking promotion as well as individuals working in other fields who wish to enter the field of environment and natural resources in an applied or management-related way. Related work or volunteer experience in environment and natural resources areas is preferred, but not required.
