Greetings!  Applications are still open for the Master of Professional Science degree at the University of Miami (Ph.D. and MS have closed for Fall 2022, but will reopen for Fall 2023 in August – check this link for a list of assistantships from this past year:

The Master of Professional Science degree (take the same courses as Ph.D. and MS students, but instead of a thesis/dissertation, you do an internship/research in the field with organizations such as NOAA, NPS, NGOs, etc. and 94% of students have a job in the field 6 months after graduation) has rolling admission until June for international students and July for domestic. We are also waiving the GRE for Fall 2022 and beyond (tuition waivers will be based on GPA).
