JD/M.P.S - Forest and Natural Resource Management

Students may earn a joint J.D./Master of Professional Studies (M.P.S.) in Forest and Natural Resource Management or a Certificate study in Environmental Decision Making through the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF), adjacent to the Syracuse University campus. The 30 credit joint J.D./M.P.S. degree is designed for students interested in legal careers involving forest, natural, and environmental resources. As human demands on the environment increase, society needs attorneys that understand the economic, demographic, social, and political issues that drive resource use allocation. Students learn the complexities of managing both resources and people recognizing that resource and environmental decisions involve value-driven conflicts. The degree provides a comprehensive foundation in forest, natural, and environmental resources issues and an understanding of both biophysical and social science.
