A large part of environmental work today is done through or in collaboration with nonprofits and NGOs. While the MES offers an in-depth study of environmental problems and potential solutions, a dual degree program with Nonprofit Leadership provides you with avenues to make change. A solid foundation in nonprofit leadership aids you in finding innovative approaches to address the challenges we face today and will face in the future. You can go on to careers such as nonprofit resource management, environmental justice advocacy, and urban resilience and adaptation policy development.
The MES/NPL dual degree program may be completed on a full-time or part-time schedule. Full-time students can expect to complete the dual degree in two years including summer, while part-time students can take up to five years to complete the degree.
To begin the dual degree, you must apply and gain admission to both the School of Social Policy and Practice and the College of Liberal and Professional Studies independently. Once admitted to both programs, you may choose the dual degree program.
