Personal Program of Study
The personal program of study provides students with the flexibility to develop the individual skillsets needed to pursue unique or emerging fields within the broader area of environmental science and policy. This degree path may be of particular interest to those interested in pursuing an entrepreneurial career. Part-time students, especially those seeking professional advancement through their current employer might also consider this emphasis.
Personal programs of study must conform to Environmental Science and Policy program guidelines and be approved by the student’s academic adviser, the Environmental Science and Policy program chair, and the Associate Provost for Academic Affairs and Director of Graduate Studies. These programs must include the entire 19-credit program core requirements and include a minimum of 34 credits.
