The School offers a degree program sequence combining either the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science and the Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Ecology. This program consists of the existing Bachelor's degree requirements, except that eligible students take up to 9 credits of graduate courses as part of their undergraduate electives, as approved by the School. These graduate courses count towards the required 36 credits for the Master of Science (thesis) or 38 credits for the Master of Science (non-thesis) in Interdisciplinary Ecology. This program can be completed in one or more years beyond the Bachelor's degree.
Eligibility Requirements for the undergraduate portion of the combination degree program:
- Must have completed all preprofessional requirements and 15 credit hours of the Environmental Science core courses
- Senior status
- Minimum upper-division GPA of 3.3
Eligibility Requirements for the graduate portion of the combination degree program:
- Satisfactory completion of the undergraduate portion of the combination degree program.
- Meet the requirements for admission established by the Graduate School and SNRE.
