The MS3 program is one of the most flexible degrees at UMass. While housed within the Department of Environmental Conservation, MS3 students can take classes across many departments including Stockbridge School of Agriculture, Regional Planning, Natural Resources Conservation, Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, Environmental Science, Architecture, and more.
In addition to one-on-one advising, the MS3 program provides a number of materials to help students plan their year of coursework. The Roadmap to Graduation helps students map out the path to achieving the 33 credits, while the approved Courselist narrows down which classes may be taken to meet a particular program requirement. Courses change each year and new courses are developed. The current course offerings can be seen in SPIRE by searching for classes using attributes like 500-level or above, "green", or specifying a department ("course subject") to narrow the results.
