Since 1985, when SEAS became the first environmental school to offer master’s projects as a capstone option, student teams have made impacts for real-world clients throughout the region, and around the globe. The interdisciplinary teams combine expertise from every specialization at SEAS—providing collaborative engagement that prepares students for careers in the sustainable fields. Many of our alumni report that their master’s project proved to be one of their most rewarding experiences at SEAS.
All SEAS master's students complete a capstone: a traditional master’s project, thesis, or practicum. The research-based doctoral program has two primary tracks: Resource Ecology Management (natural science focus) and Resource Policy and Behavior (social science focus).
