Advisement and Mentoring
We know each student by name.
Each student receives individualized attention from a graduate advisor who is regularly available for meetings before evening classes. The advisor works with students to help them track their academic progress in the program. All new students have assistance in creating a study plan that will help them meet their goals.
The program director and other faculty provide more in-depth course advisement as well as career mentoring. With an average class size of fewer than 12 students, the program offers a high degree of student-faculty interaction. The faculty includes researchers from the Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences, as well as seasoned environmental professionals who are currently practicing in the field. They provide instruction that is based on real-world experience.
