Natural Resources Introduction
The Master of Natural Resources (MNR) degree and related graduate certificates prepare students for employment and career opportunities in environmental conservation and sustainability development, especially new jobs emerging in an increasingly global, urban, and interconnected world.
Designed as a professional degree, the MNR is offered in four distinct formats to meet the needs of our diverse student audience: Online, Executive (XMNR), Global (GMNR), and World Executive (WXMNR). All four 30-credit, non-thesis formats provide an interdisciplinary perspective, transformative experiences, and international engagement as core elements of the curriculum. The MNR degree does not require a GRE for admission, and there are no additional costs for out-of-state or international students.
Unsure about a full Masters degree program? Or maybe you would like to take a few courses before you decide? Graduate certificates are a great way to earn academic credit and receive formal recognition for coursework without committing to a full degree program. We offer two graduate certificates: GC in Natural Resources (GCNR), and GC in Global Sustainability (GCGS).
