Facilitating Diversity and Inclusion through Location Flexibility
To facilitate diversity, inclusion and accessibility to education, we provide personalized pathways for students to achieve their goals. We recognize that many of our prospective students have personal, family, and community commitments that make traveling to campus difficult, contributing to lower student success. To help overcome these challenges, students in our college have access to graduate level online courses and the ability to conduct research off campus. This flexibility has enabled students from diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds to acquire post graduate education, while remaining active members of their community. To date, students have included members of regional tribes, families of active duty service members and veterans, as well as persons employed in industry and state or federal agencies.
We are continually committed in finding innovative ways to increase the accessibility of our programs. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions on how we can help you meet your goals.
The University has a lot of online courses at the upper-division and graduate level. These can be found via these websites:
The M.S. degree in CNR has one designation: Natural Resources. However, thesis topics must be chosen from disciplinary areas within a college department. The minimum program consists of 30 credit hours, of which 18 credits must be 500-level courses. Up to 10 of these 500-level credits can be in departmental or program 500 Research and Thesis (e.g. WLF 500, FOR 500, NRS 500, etc). This degree requires completion of a thesis project (or non-thesis project) that is the result of original work carried out by the student under the supervision of the major professor and the graduate advisory committee.
