The mission of the Environmental and Conservation Sciences Graduate Program (ECS) is to provide interdisciplinary scholarship in terms of teaching and research to prepare graduate students (Masters and Doctorate) to work on environmental problems that span traditional academic boundaries.
ECS strives to promote an equitable, diverse, and inclusive environment. Click here to read our statements of solidarity.
The ECS program is designed to provide a platform for students to develop an expertise in at least one discipline, but have exposure through course work to other relevant environmental disciplines. The students can choose one of three tracks; 1) Conservation Biology, 2) Environmental Science, or 3) Environmental Social Science. The former two roughly align with biotic and abiotic domains of the environmental sciences, while the last track was recently developed for students with interest in areas such as Environmental Economics.
