Environmental Science and Natural Resource Journalism

Department Website

The University of Montana's Master's program in Environmental Science and Natural Resource Journalism responds to a critical need for journalists trained to tell compelling stories that illuminate the complex relationship between nature and society. Our graduate students work with world-­class science and journalism faculty to produce cutting-­edge stories in a spectacular physical and academic setting. Beyond their practical training and research in environmental journalism, our students choose interdisciplinary courses from an array of subjects reflecting The University of Montana’s commitment to the conservation of nature and the well-being of humanity. They produce print and photo stories, multi-­media projects, and web and broadcast documentaries that address global as well as regional issues like wilderness policy, environmental health, endangered species, forestry and mining practices, the management of public lands, climate change and natural resources.
