MES Program Details

Individualized curriculum through the Plan of Study

The MES program uses an innovative pedagogical model that focuses on the Plan of Study –a tool to help you articulate and work towards your own research interests. In conjunction with the one required course, ENVS 5100 Interdisciplinary Research in Environmental Studies, a Faculty Advisor will guide you through the creation of a statement of interest and intellectual exploration, which will evolve into a Plan of Study defining your Area of Concentration and learning objectives. Those objectives become your own individual curriculum, guiding your choice of courses and other educational experiences.
