As research pushes awareness of environmental concerns into the mainstream, society at large is becoming keenly aware of how its activities affect the planet`s ecosystems. The Environmental Studies program takes a broad, pragmatic approach to training tomorrow`s decision-makers, giving you technical tools that are critical for sound environmental management, as well as a firm grasp on the complexity involved in meeting environmental challenges.
