 Online M.S. Park and Resource Management Curriculum 



The online Master of Science in Park and Resource Management curriculum consists of eight courses and a six credit internship.  Two courses are offered each fall and spring so the program can be completed in two calendar years.  Internships, which can be done after completing at least six courses, are usually completed during the summer, but arrangements can be made to complete the internship requirement during the academic year (i.e., fall or spring).  Here is the course rotation for the next two years:
