Here's How to be Part of the 1st Group - 22nd Nov 17 - EWI
The Cultural and Environmental Resource Management Program admits a select group of students on a competitive basis each Fall quarter. Minimum entrance requirements are an earned Bachelor's degree and minimum 3.0 GPA for the past 90 quarter credits or 60 semester credits. Additionally, you must be able to meet the guidelines for undergraduate degree preparation outlined on the web page, including basic statistics, knowledge of microeconomic principles, and proficiency with computers. Students lacking undergraduate coursework in statistics or economics may be accepted, but will be required to take remedial courses in the first year. Letters of reference are very important, as is your own letter of application and GRE scores. We make our decisions based on GPA, letters of recommendation, GRE scores, statement of purpose (clarity of purpose and quality of writing), appropriateness of undergraduate degree and/or past experience, personal contacts (if the student calls or visits), and match of student interests to the interests and expertise of the Cultural and Environmental Resource Management faculty. Naturally, all of these criteria are judged in the context of the total applicant pool for the upcoming year.
