Our 15-month Masters program offers students a remarkable graduate education and professional training at a cost-value less than traditional 2-year residential graduate programs. Because of the immersive nature of our program, Environmental Conservation students are not eligible for campus assistantships, but rather they can apply for paid houry work positions on campus. We encourage all students to apply for our Environmental Conservation program scholarship (see below), and to seek additional sources of grants, scholarships or loans. Please contact the Environmental Conservation Program office at (608) 890-2600 with any questions you have about Environmental Conservation program costs.
