The Major Research Project (MRP) is an applied research project completed over the period of one year with guidance from a supervisor. The MRP demonstrates the student’s thorough understanding, application, and integration of the theories and practices acquired from the MA Environmental Education and Communication program as made evident through a final written paper and/or more non-traditional knowledge products. It fulfills an essential completion criterion and is ideal for those looking to apply their learning in the workplace for the benefit of a community, organization or group of people or to leverage their project into consulting and/or immediate contribution in terms of environmental education and communication. Prerequisites: All MAEEC coursework (with the exception of EECO 688 final residency) including: EECO 500, 503, 508, 504, 620, 586, 509, and 510 (or a suitable elective approved by the program head).
