Environmental Studies (MS) with a concentration in Self-Designed Studies
When your career goals transcend the academic boundaries of our existing Environmental Studies programs, you may consider a more individualized approach. Students engage in a rigorous and rewarding process of crafting an academic framework which reflects their individual professional goals while providing a structured and disciplined approach for achieving academic depth and meaningful practice.
Self-Designed studies provide an avenue for students whose interests lie at the intersection of disciplines, such as nature and writing, conservation and communications, agriculture and community, art and environment, ecology and psychology. Those choosing this option must have a predominantly environmental focus, a strong academic background, experience in their proposed field of study, and clearly articulated professional goals.
Chart your own course.
Name and describe the program you envision. Then work with an advisor to craft a program of study that integrates advanced coursework in your area of interest with foundation courses in environmental studies.
Create an interdisciplinary program.
Antioch University New England has a longstanding tradition of providing unique educational opportunities. Self-Designed studies allow you to blend your academic strengths and professional experience to create a curriculum that goes beyond traditional boundaries.
