Graduate Residency in Environmental Education and Science Communication: College of Natural Resources, McCall Outdoor Science School

This one-year cohort-based program leads to a Master’s of Natural Resources in Environmental Education and Science Communication. It is a great program for folks just out of undergrad who want to get some experience while building a skill-set that would enhance their ability to do community-engaged learning around natural resources. It’s also a great option for professionals seeking to advance their careers. Because we are a cohort-based program on a small campus, our students get a ton of support from peers and faculty. Our classes are field-based, hands-on and experiential, and as part of the program our graduate students get to do 13 weeks of a mentored teaching practicum in our McCall Outdoor Science School.
