Our 15-month master's program offers students a remarkable graduate education and professional training at a cost-value less than traditional 2-year residential graduate programs. Because of the immersive nature of our program, Environmental Conservation students are not eligible for campus assistantships, but rather they can apply for paid hourly work positions on campus. We encourage all students to apply for our Environmental Conservation tuition assistance (see below), and to seek additional sources of grants, scholarships or loans.
