School of Environment and Natural Resources
The Environment and Natural Resources Graduate Program (ENRGP) is the academic home for a group of faculty and graduate students who share a common interest in improving our understanding of the environment, our natural resources, and our ability to protect and manage them. These faculty and students are engaged in research, education, and learning in a variety of areas in the natural and social sciences. This diverse and interdisciplinary group is unified by a commitment to intellectual rigor and a common definition and standard for scholarship.
The ENRGP prepares students with the expertise needed to follow pursuits in the public or private sectors in research, public policy development, environmental and natural resource management, and more through our PhD program and two master's degrees, one focused on research and the other on professional practice. We invite prospective students to explore the information below and links to the left to discover the opportunities that the ENRGP provides.
The Master of Environment and Natural Resources (MENR) is a theory-into-practice degree program that prepares students for careers in fields related to the sustainability of the environment and natural resources in an applied- or management-related way. This program is a non-thesis degree that is appealing both to individuals already working in the field of environment and natural resources who are seeking promotion as well as individuals working in other fields who wish to enter the field of environment and natural resources in an applied or management-related way. Related work or volunteer experience in environment and natural resources areas is preferred, but not required.
The MENR degree offers flexibility and diversity in course work for a field of study that will contribute to the student's career goals. The degree features a rigorous, but flexible program, creating valuable educational and training experiences for those planning for or already engaged in professional careers in environmental or natural resources management, administration, planning or education. Outcomes for our alumni are as diverse as their interests. Alumni have gone on to gain a variety of employment, including government, private, and non-profit employers. Those seeking public employment have found it at all levels, such as Columbus Metro Parks, the Ohio EPA and Division of Wildlife, and the US Department of State.
