The online program in park and resource management was designed to meet the needs of professionals in the field who, because of their employment situation, cannot attend a traditional graduate program. The program has since expanded to serve students interested in pursuing new career paths or changing directions in their current jobs.
The MS in PRM program is conducted completely online. This 30 credit program involves 24 credits of course work and a six credit Internship. Two courses are offered each semester, fall and spring, and the program can be completed in two calendar years. Internships can be scheduled once the student has completed at least 18 credits (six courses) in the program. Internships can be scheduled during any semester, but most stiudents schedule them in the summer. Please be aware that this is not considered a full-time program as we only offer two courses (six credits) per semester. Full-time status for graduate programs is nine credits.
Classes begin and end at the same time as on campus classes, and are conducted in an asynchronous manner, meaning that you do not have to be at your computer at a certain time.
