Diploma in Environment and Natural Resources Management

The Diploma in Environment and Natural Resources Management (DENRM)  program is designed to give professionals in environment-related activities a solid foundation in the art and science of environment and natural resources management, as well as a multidisciplinary perspective.

In this program the students are given an option to choose between earning a Diploma degree or a Masters Degree. Students can exit the MENRM program and earn the Diploma degree when 24 units of specified courses are completed.

Students are given an option to choose from two program tracks-either the Upland or the Coastal Resources Management Tracks-upon completion of two core courses.

Objectives

The degree program aim to:

  • Equip students with a multidisciplinary perspective in dealing with environmental issues by providing solid grounding in both natural sciences and social sciences as these apply to environmental management.
  • Enable students to become highly skilled and knowledgeable practitioners in either upland or coastal resources management.

Admission Requirements

Applicants to the Master’s program must have a baccalaureate degree in any field.

Curriculum
