University of Wyoming
Science and Math Teaching Center
The Graduate Program operates under the accreditation of the Science and Mathematics Teaching Center at the University of Wyoming. When a student is accepted into Teton Science Schools Graduate Program, concurrent application may be made to the Masters of Science in Natural Science program at the Science and Math Teaching Center. Upon acceptance to the Science and Mathematics Teaching Center graduate program, students will have full graduate degree seeking status at the University of Wyoming. Dual matriculation into Teton Science Schools’ and the Science and Mathematics Teaching Center graduate programs does not require the student to complete their master’s degree at the University of Wyoming but does convey the opportunity to seamlessly complete their graduate work at the University of Wyoming following completion of their year at Teton Science Schools. The University of Wyoming applies 15 credits taken at Teton Science Schools toward a 30 credit dual Masters of Science in Natural Science and Environment and Natural Resources to be completed over at least 2 semesters, depending on the student’s background. The University of Wyoming also offers an attractive option for students interested in gaining teaching credentials. This is currently only available for those who are interested in teaching high school biology.
The Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources
The Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Wyoming offers a graduate program that emphasizes an interdisciplinary, problem-based approach to tackling real-world challenges. Graduate students in the program are given leadership responsibilities and an opportunity to bring their own disciplinary perspective to bear in classes. Graduate studies in Environment and Natural Resources are always completed in conjunction with a degree program in another discipline (e.g. Masters of Science in Natural Science/Environment and Natural Resources). In this way, Environment and Natural Resources adds a breadth of perspective to the depth of training in a traditional discipline. The objective of this program is to provide master's students with an opportunity to add knowledge about the human, policy, legal, and scientific elements of Environment and Natural Resources issues to their traditional graduate program. Teton Science Schools’ graduate students are encouraged to consider adding Environment and Natural Resources to their course of study when in residence at the University of Wyoming.
University of Wyoming Financial Support
The University of Wyoming also offers teaching assistantships and has the Nunn Family Scholarship to support Teton Science Schools’ graduate students during their year in Laramie.
