The Master in Environmental Management (MEM) program (www.western.edu/mem) at Western State Colorado University is now accepting applications for both the Integrative Land Management (ILM) and Sustainable and Resilient Communities (SRC) tracks – both of which have outdoor education students and practitioners who have found exciting ways to apply their skill sets and experiences. The ILM track prepares people planning for careers in public lands management, private land conservation, and environmental advocacy, while the SRC track prepares people seeking careers in climate action planning, sustainability coordinating, sustainability consulting, and nonprofit leadership focused on resilient food, energy, transportation, and building systems.
The MEM is flexible, with distance, Rocky Mountain residential, and hybrid options. It is a two-year program wherein students pursue intensive, interdisciplinary coursework in environmental/sustainability science, policy, and management skills the first year, as well as start to plan their projects. The second year of the program (in addition to three elective courses) focuses on a major, 600-hour, hands-on project for a major stakeholder or organization anywhere in the world. Many people choose to pursue a project in their workplace that goes above and beyond their regular responsibilities.
