UofM School of Natural Resources and Environment offers two masters degrees: an MS in natural resources and environment and an MLA in landscape architecture. MS program students may specialize in one of six fields of study:

  • Behavior, Education and Communication

  • Environmental Justice
  • Environmental Policy and Planning
  • Sustainable Systems

Landscape architecture students have two programs to choose from:

  • Three-year accredited M.L.A. degree
  • Two-year program for those interested in obtaining a second degree in landscape architecture at the masters level, practicing landscape architects seeking advanced education, and those interested in pursing a doctoral degree

Many of our students also pursue dual degrees with other departments at the UofM, such as Business, Engineering, Law, Public Health, Public Policy, Urban Planning, and Russian & East European Studies.
