Sustainability Science (can be completed online)
Track Advisor: Gregory Moller, School of Food Science
Public and private agencies and businesses dealing with issues related to the management of environmental issues frequently lack professional expertise in science aspects of coupled natural and human systems.
The Sustainability Science PSM track is intended to provide science professionals for this growing field and builds on the existing Environmental Science curriculum in the physical and natural sciences. Courses in this track must be drawn from the University 500-level science courses (the list below contains suggestions only), and must represent an integrated course of study that focuses on a particular area of sustainability that is relevant to the student’s professional goals. Internships in science practicum will be available through Sustainable Idaho, the outreach arm of the University of Idaho Sustainability Center. All students in the track are required to take ENVS 596, the integrative capstone course in sustainability science.
: At a minimum, students entering the program in this track are expected to have successfully completed college level introductory courses in biology, chemistry, physics and algebra.
