Our Program Vision
The Environmental Conservation program of the University of Massachusetts Amherst is recognized nationally and internationally among scientists and professionals as a high-quality program and as a result is able to attract the highest caliber students. The ECo Graduate Program has a strong sense of community, both socially and scholarly, such that students cherish their participation in the program and become strong advocates of the program after finishing their degree. The ECo Graduate Program offers a comprehensive quality curriculum in the core topic areas of: 1) core science (biology, ecology, conservation and environmental building design), 2) quantitative science (statistics, GIS, modeling, physical science), and 3) human dimensions (resource values, policies, programs and economics), and effectively engages adjunct faculty in the process.
The ECo Graduate Program offers extramurally-funded research assistantships on a broad range of environmental conservation topics and provides effective training for students seeking either a thesis (research) degree or a professional (non-thesis) degree. MS thesis degree students completing the ECo Graduate Program are highly competitive for conservation science positions in government or the private sector, and some are well prepared to meet the challenges of any PhD program. Similarly, doctoral degree students completing the ECo Graduate Program are highly competitive for conservation science positions in academia, government or the private sector. Faculty and students jointly publish their research findings in leading scientific journals.
