There are two approaches to beginning the online M.S. program in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences. You can apply for admission or you can enroll in a few courses as a non-degree seeking student, which allows you to try out the program to see if it is a good fit for you.
To Enroll in a Few Courses
You can find the NRES courses being offered online at the Online Illinois course finder (be sure to click on the down arrow on the right side to pull down the full list). For course information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that only 400- and 500-level courses can count toward a graduate degree.
As a non-degree seeking student, you will also register through the Online Illinois website.
