ecological planning curriculum
Pursuing Ecological Planning
Each entering cohort of students is limited to at most four mature, motivated individuals with:
- a passionate and sustained interest in the environment
- a clear vision of future goals
- a track record of academic and professional achievements in science or an environmental field
- excellent letters of recommendations
- strong Graduate Record Examination scores
The Ecological Planning curriculum is possible to pursue within the M.S. degree in Natural Resources offered by the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont. Prospective students need to apply to the graduate college at UVM. For an application and information on deadlines and requirements, see the Graduate College Website.
While students are responsible for covering their tuition costs, individuals accepted to pursue ecological planning are eligible for single-semester Graduate Teaching Assistantships (which provide a tuition scholarship of 6 credits and a stipend) and other funding opportunities. Students are encouraged to apply for fellowships and grants from organizations such as Sigma Xi - The Scientific Research Society, and The Switzer Foundation.
