Training conservation leaders in practical interdisciplinary skills to tackle complex decisions in a changing world.
The Nelson Institute professional master's program in environmental conservation is a 15-month, 32-credit blended learning curriculum designed to train conservation leaders in practical interdisciplinary skills.
Built on the legacy of pioneering environmental leaders such as John Muir, Aldo Leopold and Gaylord Nelson, the program helps early-career working professionals advance their leadership, conservation and environmental management expertise through campus learning and remote experiences.
With curricula in conservation planning, environmental policy, and professional development, students are better prepared to tackle complex challenges in a changing world. Students also engage directly with a range of conservation organizations, helping to solve some of the most urgent challenges in biodiversity and environmental protection.
