If you are looking for the chance to continue studying what you are most passionate about and collaborate with a top faculty member in your field, CNRE is the place. We offer traditional master’s and doctoral programs, as well as flexible options for earning a master of natural resources degree in the National Capital Region: an online program and an executive program.
Being a successful graduate student requires intensive study and often original research, so delve into your options to make sure it’s the right path for you. It’s also important to connect with the graduate program coordinator to learn about special requirements. For programs on the Blacksburg campus, you should talk with a faculty member in your intended area of study to learn about research and funding availability.
Sometimes it takes a little more time and effort to find the college that’s right for you. Virginia Tech welcomes transfer students, but there are some requirements and policies that you need to be aware of if you are planning to complete your degree as a Hokie.
The College of Natural Resources and Environment recommends that students transfer after one year of study, and you’ll want to choose courses that fulfill the first-year requirements for your intended major. In general, students should complete a full year of freshman English, at least eight credit hours of the lab sciences required for your major, and two semesters of upper-level math (pre-calculus or above). You’ll also need a GPA of 3.0 or better.
