Curriculum

Online MS Curriculum

The M.S. at a distance has four components:

  1. Each student must complete 21 credits in the environmental science option area. These consist of:
    • Six credits, or two classes, in social science.
    • The remaining 15 credits, or five classes, need to come from biological science and physical science to give you depth and expertise in your field. (If you would like to take additional social science courses as part of these 15 credits, please contact Environmental Science Program for approval – envs@uidaho.edu or (208) 885-6113.)
  2. One 500-level course (3 credits) in statistics or research methods. Most distance students enroll in EnvS 541, Sampling and Analysis of Environmental Contaminants, to fill this requirement. This is an online course offered every spring. 
  3. Two credits of EnvS 501, environmental science seminar. Students complete this course through independent study, attending 20 events – conferences, seminars, workshops, meetings of city or county government, etc. – related directly or indirectly to environmental science.
  4. Four credits of EnvS 599, Non-thesis Research. This consists of a substantial project in which the student demonstrates ability to do rigorous independent work. The student's advisor oversees the project. Once completed, the project must be evaluated and approved by the student’s committee. The committee will be composed of the student’s faculty advisor, who is a member of the EnvS faculty, and the Director of the Environmental Science Program. Additional committee members are optional.

For more information, please contact the Environmental Science Program at envs@uidaho.edu.
