This program requires completion of 12 or 13 course credits (most semester-long courses receive one credit each), a thesis or capstone exam, and an internship. The M.A. program usually takes two years of full-time study. Students may also enroll in the program on a part-time basis. The M.A. degree is awarded through the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
This program is twelve months long, with a curriculum that consists of small seminar-style courses, journal club, and independent team project-based activities culminating in an individual case study. Students must complete a four-week internship in a conservation medicine related setting, as well as choose two elective courses from many different disciplines available to augment their educational and professional goals.
The program includes four main elements: Engineering Tools, Management Tools, Electives, and Seminar. Students must select a total of two courses from the available courses in Advanced Mathematics and Computer Applications to fulfill the Engineering tools requirement. To satisfy the Management Tools requirements, students need to take two courses from the available courses offered. Six electives need to be taken for the Electives requirement. All students must take the Environmental and Water Resources Engineering Graduate Seminar during two terms.

MALD students choose one or two concentrations from an array of 22 fields of study, one of which is International Environment & Resource Policy. The program demonstrates how environment and resource issues are integral to the ongoing economic development process and are critical to the security of societies. The role of science in developing sound policies is emphasized, as is the role of technology choice and the policies that influence them. Clashes such as those that occur between trade and environmental treaty regimes, forest protection and sovereignty and between developed and developing countries create new challenges for international diplomacy. The program emphasizes the need to utilize multiple disciplinary tools from science, economics, politics, law and engineering in developing sustainable solutions.
The International Environment and Resource Policy field of study requires the completion of a minimum of three course credits. A list of applicable courses can be found here: http://fletcher.tufts.edu/Academic/Courses/Fields-of-Study/International-Environment-and-Resource-Policy
The certificate in Environmental Management provides students with the tools and techniques they need to understand the complex issues of future environmental management. The program blends courses in fundamentals, such as regulations and compliance issues, with leading edge concepts in life-cycle analysis, risk management, and remediation technologies. Students must complete five courses, including one course in each of three focus areas: environmental engineering and technology, environmental health, and policy. The two remaining courses can be selected from any of the focus areas.
This unique certificate program has three goals: (1) To develop research projects that will make significant local, national, and global contributions; (2) To educate a diverse, ethical, skilled set of professionals who are trained to be multidisciplinary even as they develop a specialization; and (3) To meet the growing global demand for interdisciplinary water experts. By meeting these goals, Tufts and WSSS graduates will be uniquely equipped to develop integrated, interdisciplinary solutions to the complex science, public health, economic, engineering, environmental, behavioral, planning, and policy issues surrounding U.S. and international water crises.
