The Austin E. Knowlton Center for Career Exploration
“The goal for college students should not be just to find a job, but to build a life. We help our students explore the kinds of lives people lead — and the ways they develop their careers to support those lives.”
— Denison President Adam Weinberg.
Denison offers a cooperative program with Duke University in the areas of Environmental Management and Forestry.
You can earn the bachelor's degree from Denison and the master's in either Environmental Management or Forestry from Duke after spending three years at Denison and two years at Duke's School of the Environment. The major program emphases at Duke are resource economics and policy, water and air resources, forest resource management, resource ecology and ecotoxicology and environmental chemistry.
An undergraduate major at Denison in natural or social science or pre-professional emphasis in business or engineering is good preparation for the Duke programs, but any undergraduate concentration will be considered for admission. If you are interested in this program, however, you should take at least one year each in biology, mathematical sciences, and economics at Denison.
