"Wish I could speak more highly of this program. Unfortunately, due to the mass confusion regarding multiple versions of curricula and poor advisers there were only 4 or 5 individuals out of a cohort of 26 that graduated in the allotted 2 years. Additionally, a grade change was issued in a course because a very new professor didn't provide a grading rubric and really didn't teach an effective course. One person in my cohort dropped out of the program after this course. Offering such a horrible class, that really provided nothing, was blatant disrespect of our time and money. Program heads couldn't refund everyone so they just upped all of our letter grades. This program is very unorganized and does not offer any "real world" experience. Students are able to do an internship for course credit but the department offers no assistance finding internships. There is no collaboration or partnerships with the University and those working in the field. We completed one research practicum with an outside partner. We were told our work would be published on the website. However, the reports we spent a whole semester writing are no where to be found on the website. Seems like we did a lot of work to just sit on a shelf. I had two excellent professors, Dr. DeGrandchamp and Dr. Briles, other than coursework completed with those professors this program was a huge let down. It's unfortunate to feel like your degree in invalid or not enough because of such an unorganized program. While the degree helped me get my job, I do not use skills learned in my graduate program in my career. Maybe in a few years this program will be better but in the mean time I would not recommend this program what so ever."

"Wish there was more guidance when coming in but if you are a real go getter you can guide yourself and make the most out of the program, otherwise it's not as useful I don't think."

"The environmental science program at UCD allows you to take a wide range of courses related to environmental science. Students come from many different undergraduate backgrounds and have a wide range of interests, making classes interesting. Being in downtown Denver provides great opportunities for jobs and internships in the field. However, funding for graduate research in this program is scarce."

"My graduate program is really flexible and the students that I meet have diverse ideas which helps me think out of the box. The only problem is that there are no scholarships or financial aids that could help us."

"The Environmental Science program at UCD seem to be one of the best around. It has a very diverse faculty that is very helpful to lead the students in their research or path in graduate studies. There are numerous opportunities for study outside the classroom to get real world experience in study abroad classes. There are many options as far as classes so the student can shape the program to their benefit. My only con would be the a few more laboratory classes to be available for the students. This is something that they are working on currently so I know the program can only get better."
