Collaborations with similar programs are available at other institutions:

 
 Students will be allowed to take on-line courses offered at Troy State University, upon approval by the Graduate Committee. Starting in 2003, Troy State University will offer two courses on line (“Environmental Impact and Policy” and Risk Management) and possibly a third one (Environmental Ethics, Policy and Law). The latter course is currently taught at Troy every other Saturday. Thus, even if this course is not offered on line, some of our students may decide to travel to Troy once every two weeks to take it.
