Program Overview

This Master’s program gives students the flexibility to earn a master’s degree while continuing to work full-time. RMA students learn how to build stakeholder capacity, practice effective communication strategies, and provide leadership and management to organizations and communities facing a myriad of challenges due to difficult resource management decisions, especially within the context of a changing climate. Students do this through a combination of weekend coursework and applied research projects with faculty, other students, and organizations working in this field.

Students who wish to earn a Master of Science in Resource Management & Administration (RMA) have three paths to do so. All pathways have different requirements; students’ selected pathway should be chosen in consultation with an academic advisor:

  • Master of Science in Resource Management & Administration - 30 semester credits (weekend and online classes)

  • Master of Science in Resource Management & Administration with Professional Science Master’s Designation (PSM) - 36 semester credits (weekday, weekend and online classes) requires a choice of 6 credits of additional science courses, (weekday)
  • Master of Science in Resource Management & Administration with a Concentration in International Sustainable Development and Climate Change (ISDCC) - 36 semester credits (online, face-to-face intensives, and international study)

The core curriculum classes meet online in the fall and spring semesters, with a 9-day intensive at the beginning of the first summer term and a 5-day intensive during the second summer term, along with three immersive international field studies courses:

  • One 9-day long intensive in the first summer semester at the Antioch New England campus (6 credits)

  • Three 8-10 day immersive experiences abroad - one in the first summer semester, one in the following spring, and one in the final summer semester (9 credits/3 credits each)

  • Online concentration courses (15 credits)

  • One 5-day intensive in the second summer semester, immediately preceding the Energy Transition course (Iceland), at the Antioch New England campus (3 credits)

  • Program Capstone: Thesis, Internship, or Master’s Project (3 credits)
