The MA in Environmental Resource Policy is a multidisciplinary program and accepts applicants from across the academic spectrum. Therefore, no specific academic or professional preparation is given priority in acceptance to the program. All applicants must:
- Hold a Bachelor's degree completed with a Grade Point Average of 3.0 or higher,
- Provide the general Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and
- Submit two (or more) letters of recommendation.
In order to satisfactorily complete several of the ENRP core courses, including applied statistics (PPPA 6002), microeconomics (ECON 6217), and environmental science (ENRP 6101/2), students must have math skills equivalent to that provided by a college course in algebra, pre-calculus, analytic geometry, or introductory statistics. Suitable applicants who lack such skills will be admitted with a stated deficiency in mathematics that must be fulfilled in the first semester of the program.
The ENRP Program offers a flexible admissions cycle; priority is given to applications received by April 1, but well-qualified applicants are considered at any time. Although the program considers both spring and fall admissions, applicants are encouraged to enter the program in the fall semester. The ENRP Program offers merit-based financial aid; applicants interested in financial aid are urged to apply as early as possible.
