    The Master of Natural Resources Management program is interdisciplinary and has thesis and course-based requirements. A broad, varied education is important in ensuring that graduates are prepared to make responsible, respectful and informed natural resources management decisions.

    Students can take courses in a wide variety of areas, such as:

    • Ecology
    • Human dimensions of natural resources management
    • Conservation biology
    • Quantitative or qualitative analyses
    • Law
    • Economic dimensions of natural resources management, policy, environmental impact assessments, and more.
  • A scenic view of Lake Winnipeg.

Program details

Expected duration: 2 years

Tuition and fees: Two years tuition, then continuing fees in subsequent years (refer to Graduate tuition and fees)

Students in the master’s program follow an individual Study Plan which includes:

  1. 12 credit hours of required courses
  2. A minimum of 9 credit hours of elective courses
  3. A master’s thesis or practicum

Thesis

The thesis component is an independent written research document resulting from an interdisciplinary research project, which addresses a practical problem or issue in natural resources and environmental management.

Practicum

Students will work closely with a faculty member to identify a partner at the beginning of their programme. They will work with the faculty member and project partner to develop a project plan proposal, secure financial support, produce a deliverable, and a record of the practicum in a Practicum Document that will contain the practicum plan, deliverable and a critical reflection.

Faculty advisor

All students have a specific faculty advisor throughout their academic program. Students usually select an advisor prior to applying for the program, but may be assigned an advisor during the application process. Faculty advisors act as program consultants for the student’s individual area of study and facilitate development of the Study Plan.

Study Plan

The Study Plan is prepared and developed by each student in consultation with a faculty advisor. The objectives of the plan are:

  1. To define a research direction; and
  2. To organize the student’s course work in the framework for integration and synthesis of interdisciplinary knowledge.
