The ability to understand, quantify, and evaluate ecosystem processes is central to good sustainability decision-making and for the deployment of cleaner technologies and practices. Institutions of all kinds are striving to reduce their impacts. This goal cannot be achieved without a new class of technically adept professionals. The Professional Science Master's in Ecosystem Science and Sustainability provides students with knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to launch successful careers and tackle ecosystem sustainability challenges and enables students from diverse academic backgrounds, such as environmental studies, business, engineering, natural resources, and agriculture, to understand the latest ecosystem science and develop the skills needed for emerging professions in areas such as greenhouse gas/carbon management, water sustainability and watershed management, and climate adaptation.
