 Online M Ed in Environmental Education Curriculum 



The online Master of Education program in Environmental Education consists of eight three-credit courses and a six credit internship for a total of 30 credits.  One class is offered each semester, fall and spring, with two classes offered each summer. 

Internships can be scheduled after a student has completed at least 18 credits in the program, and can be completed during any semester, either in a six-credit block or split into two three-credit internships in different semesters.  Appropriate Internships sites and opportunities are identified with the advisor.

Taken in order, the program can be completed in two calendar years, as courses repeat every two years.

Here is a list of the courses and the semesters in which they will be offered in the next two+ years:
