The master's degree programs vary in their level of prescription, but all are sufficiently flexible to accomodate the diverse academic backgrounds, professional experiences, and career aspirations of a large and vibrant student body. The program curricula draw from more than one hundred courses taught by fifty F&ES faculty, as well as from courses taught elsewhere at Yale. Each student's course of study is customized through consultation with a faculty advisor who guides the student's learning experience from the first week at Yale until graduation. 

The master's degree programs require:
  • A minimum of two years in residence
  • 48 credits of coursework at Yale
  • A summer intership or research experience
  • A completion of the Training Modules in Technical Skills prior to the student's first term.
