These professionals will also contribute to the analysis and resolution of global problems such as deforestation, insufficient world food supplies, population growth, planetary health, and global climate change/warming.
We offer a master Environmental Science and Policy program at George Mason University . Areas of specific departmental focus include ecosystems, conservation, environmental biocomplexity, molecular ecology, sustainability science, environmental policy and management, and human/environmental interactions.
- Environmental problems are defined in the real world and do not necessarily conform to traditional academic disciplines.
- As such, solutions require creative combinations of diverse interests and subjects.
- Effective training requires rigorous, problem-focused transdisciplinary action in a setting in which research is an essential element supporting instruction.
