Choose a Professional Science Master’s Option
The RMC program has been approved for affiliation as a Professional Science Master’s (PSM) Professional Science Master's by the Council of Graduate Schools. The RMC-PSM requires completion of the 30 credits from the RMC program requirements and an additional 12 credits from completing the Environmental Science Certificate. The Environmental Science Certificate includes 3 environmental science courses (9 credits) and one internship (3 credits). This results in a 42-credit RMC-PSM.
The Environmental Science Certificate is a grouping of additional courses added to an RMC student’s ongoing master’s degree. It is not available as a stand alone certificate; students must be enrolled in the Resource Management master’s degree to pursue this concentration.
Students can choose to follow the PSM track of studies or the non-PSM track of studies. Learn PSM track requirements and details here.
