*At least 6 credits must be selected from SPEA Environmental Science Electives (listing SPEA-E) and 11 credits from ISE Electives (listing ENGR), including courses listed in the Core requirements and in the following sections.
Each candidate for the MSES-ISE dual degree program must obtain professionally relevant experience through one of the following options:
- Approved internship SPEA-E 589 or ENGR-E 591 (0-3 credit hours): Work with either the O’Neill Career Hub or the Luddy School’s Career Services Office to arrange for a suitable internship. Internships vary greatly according to the expectations and requirements of the sponsor. You will be expected to give careful attention in the selection of an internship suitable to your professional goals. Typically, students do not use credit hours for the internship, and as a result, have minimal fees for the experience. However, students who want the additional credit hours can receive up to three credit hours for an internship involving the appropriate amount of work; these students will owe fees for the three credit hours.
- Professional experience (3 credit hours): If you have had significant environmental management, computing, technical, or design work experience in the past, you may receive a three-credit hour reduction and a waiver of the experiential requirement. To receive three credit hours, you must have a minimum of one year’s work experience. Under no circumstances will prior professional experience credit and transfer credit total more than 12 credit hours. Students receiving prior professional experience credit should carefully plan the balance of their program with their faculty advisors.
The above are examples of your course options. For a complete listing, see the official Indiana University Graduate Bulletin and work with your advisor as you make your schedule.
