Place Based Graduate Research
The College of Natural Resources in partnership with several regional partners supports opportunities for place based graduate research (thesis) studies. Place based graduate thesis students conduct novel research within their local regions and in many cases continue to work with their current employer.
Common factors for considering place based graduate education include:
- Already having a permanent position
- Family and community commitments
- Seasonal commitments
The main features of a place based graduate program are that students have a local committee member*, conduct locally relevant research, and take online or distance education courses.**
