The type of student who will do well in our program includes students who like to learn, are fascinated by the natural world, are interested in complex problem solving, and who want to leave the world a better place. While a science background is helpful, it is not required for success in the program. We do offer biology and chemistry pre-requisite courses for those students who need a basic foundational understanding of science. This degree is a blend of science, management, and policy as it pertains to environmental matters. As such, students with science backgrounds and non-science backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
