The MESM program is a two-year* professional degree program designed for individuals who plan to enter or re-enter the workforce upon graduation. The program focuses on application and problem-solving and has three parts: the first-year core curriculum, the second-year work in one of seven specializations, and the Master's Project.

The MESM degree is not intended as an intermediate degree for the PhD; however, MESM alumni are adequately prepared for PhD studies in many disciplines, including Environmental Science & Management.

*It is possible to take more than two years to complete the program if work or personal factors make it impossible for a student to engage in full-time graduate study.
