NEW DUAL MASTERS PROGRAM in Env Studies-Public Admin

The University of North Carolina Wilmington is currently recruiting for the spring 2018 cohort for our NEW DUAL DEGREE PROGRAM =96 Master of Science in Environmental Studies and Master of Public Administration program. This is the first Dual Degree Program at UNCW where successful candidates can earn two degrees in three years as opposed to four years if enrolled separately.

This degree option is specifically for students who want to bridge the communication gap between environmental science and public policy.  Potential post-graduation opportunities associated with the program include: career tracks in coastal planning and management and other environmental programs at the federal, state, or local level; careers in nonprofit organizations focused on environmental issues; and private sector jobs focused on consulting or regulatory compliance.  Our program is both challenging and rewarding, with a high degree of collegiality among students and faculty between both departments.

Students seeking admission to the dual M.S. EVS/M.P.A. degree program must complete an application for admission to both programs. Students must be successfully admitted to both degree programs, in accordance with their individual standards and requirements.
