Field of Study

The M.S. Degree Program in Ecological Restoration has an interdisciplinary approach and is structured to complement and bridge between several sciences and engineering degree programs and a restoration certificate, and to position its graduates for numerous career pathways for which there is a growing demand locally, throughout Montana, nationally, and globally. This master’s degree is offered right in the center of the largest active Superfund sites of the nation. Which is probably among the world’s greatest living laboratories for ecological restoration.
