Graduate Curriculum A Master’s degree in Environmental Science and Natural Resource Journalism requires 36 credit hours: 18 in journalism and 12 in natural resource issues and/or environmental science. The school offers two options for the remaining six credits. Students can either use them to work on a documentary-style professional project or opt for creating a portfolio of work in multiple media. The professional project option allows students to embark on an ambitious investigation or create a comprehensive public information project. Students typically produce the project in their final semester at the university after completing the rest of the coursework. This allows them to travel outside Montana and abroad for research. They return to Montana to defend their project in front of their chosen faculty committee. The portfolio option allows students to take additional journalism electives and produce a three-part portfolio that explores a common environmental or natural resource theme. The portfolio must include work presented in at least two different mediums, ranging from writing to photography, video, audio, multimedia, maps and graphics. This track is designed for those wanting more experience with different journalistic mediums. Master's Work All students in the master’s program produce original, substantive works of journalism as part of their degree requirements. Their work is supervised and evaluated by a master’s committee, consisting of a chair and reviewer chosen from the School of Journalism faculty and a faculty member from another school or department. The graduate program director vets project, thesis or portfolio proposals before the student recruits a committee. In addition to their master’s stories, project and portfolio students produce a 1,000-word companion narrative that addresses context, story relevance, reporting and production process, sourcing, ethical considerations, media format choices and plans for publication. The master’s defense takes the form of a public presentation, where the candidate presents this narrative and shares some of her/his work. Committee members will attend this presentation and examine the candidate. In determining if the master’s work is fit for publication by a reputable news organization, they will consider accuracy, integrity, ethics, news value, depth, originality, language, style and effectiveness of technique.
