Natural Resources and the Environment is a multidisciplinary group of faculty and students. The Environmental Conservation option emphasizes natural resource policy, conservation biology, sustainability, ecological ethics and values, international environmental affairs, and spatial data analysis (remote sensing and GIS).

About

Students in the Environmental Conservation option typically have a BS/BA degree or strong background in environmental and natural resource sciences with a keen interest in combining the natural sciences with the social sciences.  Those without this background may be accepted upon completion of some additional fundamental courses.  Areas of interest include natural resource policy, conservation biology, sustainability, ecological ethics and values, international environmental affairs, and spatial data analysis (remote sensing and GIS).  After successful completion of the MS degree, students have gone on to work for federal and state agencies, for private industry, and for non-governmental organizations.
