Students interested in the M.A. in Environmental Studies with a concentration in sustainable development and policy can now obtain their degree online. Students must apply specifically for the online degree. Application requires transcripts that show the student has completed a 300-level or above ecology course with lab with a grade of B or better prior to full admission into the degree program. Students deficient in ecology will be considered for conditional admission and be required to satisfactorily complete the ecology requirement no later than the end of their first year. Since ENS 546 can not be taken by online students, the department will consider petitions for acceptance of other general ecology courses to fulfill the requirement. Once completed, the approved ecology course cannot be repeated for credit nor can another course be petitioned for approval. All other core, concentration, and elective requirements are the same as those for the degree offered on campus.
