Thank you for your inquiry about the graduate programs in environmental studies at Huxley College.
Huxley College is one of seven colleges on the WWU campus, located between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C., overlooking Bellingham Bay and the San Juan Islands to the west and the North Cascades to the east.
Normally, a student chooses one of these options and, with the help of a faculty adviser, an individual Plan of Study is designed building on Huxley College courses and, when appropriate, courses from other departments. Both M.S. programs require a thesis; the M.Ed. has thesis, field project and non-thesis options.
General requirements include:
Application for admission must be made to the Graduate School using the WWU application form. Questions regarding application procedures can be directed to the Graduate School, Western Washington University, Bellingham, WA 98225-9037 [phone 360-650-3170 or email email@example.com or website http://www.wwu.edu].
Teaching assistantships (TAs) are available on a competitive basis and provide stipends up to $3,373/qtr and a partial tuition waiver.
Research assistantships (RAs) are available through individual faculty members. Stipends are similar to those for TAs and may provide tuition waivers. Students need to contact faculty directly when inquiring about RAs.
Funding for graduate research is often available, as is funding for travel to present papers at professional meetings.
Graduate Work-Study, in addition to other forms of financial aid, are available by submitting an application to Student Financial Resources (360-650-3470).
