Description

The Master of Science in Resource Interpretation (MSRI) is a 100% online masters program offering a thesis and non-thesis option. Housed in the College of Forestry and Agriculture of Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, students attend classes weekly from remote locations from the tip of Alaska to the tip of Texas – and all points in between. The program has learned a lot in its five years of operation and progress. This session provides a brief overview of the program and its contents then offers information on key components for successes and of those not so successful attempts. Discussion will include, but not be limited to, course content, student camaraderie, and academia buy in.
