Graduate students earn 32 transferable graduate credits through the University of Wyoming, of which 15 are typically accepted at other universities. These credits may be applied toward either a master’s degree in education or environmental science. Official transcripts are issued from the University of Wyoming. Many graduate students choose to attend an accredited university partner to complete their masters, this is not the only postgraduate option.
After the Program
Become a Place-Based Education Fellow in Bhutan
Since 2008, Teton Science Schools has been supporting the integration of more place-based education into Bhutan. Most recently we have offered a Place-Based Education Fellowship in Bhutan and so far, have had 2 alumni of the Graduate Program – Emma Griffith (Class of 2015-16) and Alex Sivitskis (Class of 2017-18; currently in Bhutan through June 2020) serve as Fellows.
We're currently looking for the next Fellow!
If you are interested spending a year living and teaching in Bhutan, we are offering an informational webinar on Wednesday, February 26 from 6:30-7:30 pm MST.
To be considered for the Fellowship, you must meet the following requirements:
- Have completed the TSS Graduate Program and a Masters Degree by the end of July 2020.
- Able to live and work independently* in Bhutan from August 2020 through June 2021 (with a 1 month time out of Bhutan from mid-December 2020 to mid-January 2021).
- Interested and prepared to teach Master’s and undergraduate students (from August 2020 through mid-December 2020) and ~5-9 year old students (from mid-January – June 2021).
- Passport valid through December 2021 (most countries require a passport valid for at least 6 months after the period of international travel).
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you are planning to join the information webinar.
*At this point, our partners in Bhutan are unable to support visas for partners or family of the Fellow. This may change in the future; however, for now our Bhutanese partners are only able to secure a visa for the Fellow.
Skills developed during your year at Kelly Campus can be applied in a variety of ways, and our faculty and staff are eager to mentor students through the process of exploring potential career avenues. TSS connects graduates with partner organizations and contacts to help you develop a professional plan. If a master’s degree is not your ultimate goal, we encourage students to consider the diverse possibilities our program offers beyond receiving a degree and also connect students with our alumni network for career opportunities.
Curious about the various opportunities you could explore after graduation? Our program has nearly 400 alumni from our 25 year history who have become nonprofit leaders, business owners and highly effective educators and school administrators.
