About this Degress

The program in Conservation Ecology and Sustainable Development at the University of Georgia is intended to provide the training necessary to handle the unique, multidisciplinary problems in the area of conservation and sustainable development and to function independently as a researcher and decision-maker to address problems of conservation and sustainable development.

It is clear that among the major global problems we face today are the rapid depletion of our natural resources and the loss of biodiversity and remnant ‘natural’ areas in the landscape. The maintenance of our quality of life, or even the maintenance of a decent standard of living, depends on our ability to make the correct decisions on the long- term sustainability of resource use. 

These decisions must be made within a holistic framework, where considerations of the physical and biological properties of ecosystems are evaluated within the social and economic context of a community. This holistic framework for decision-making is a strength of UGA’s Odum School of Ecology. The objectives of this program are: 1) to develop a flexible training program at the M.S. level which provides interdisciplinary skills in decision-making in the areas of conservation ecology and sustainable development; and 2) to perform research which provides hands-on applied field experience for students.
