The ESE curriculum is designed to create a foundation where students develop the knowledge and tools necessary for sustainable management of natural resources and to reduce the "ecological footprint" of human society. As an ESE graduate student you will be exposed to large-scale ecological issues (e.g. global warming, loss of biodiversity, sustainable food production) and the scientific principles that help design solutions. The ESE program aims to train practitioners (consultants, policy makers, regulators, industry) at the MS level, and researchers and educators at the PhD level. Students choose a theme, and take courses that support their theme area and unique research.
