The Master of Park and Protected Area Management (M.P.P.M.) program is offered through CSU Online by the Department of Human Dimensions of Natural Resources (HDNR). It is designed to develop an understanding of theory, research, and practice related to protected areas, and is aimed at preparing students for leadership roles as highly knowledgeable practitioners within the field. Through the integration of social and ecological science, students will gain a holistic understanding of protected area values, services, and governance, as well as the expertise to operationalize those values through effective planning and management of public use, concessions, finance strategies, community collaboration, and human capacity development.
