The major focuses on environmental interactions and problem solving by developing an integrated biophysical environment - human environment perspective. In ERM, students will gain knowledge across the natural sciences, an understanding of how they interact, the skills (tools and techniques) needed to support decision making, as well as the methods of management and governance that are critical for environmental decision making. Beginning in first year students learn in the classroom and through hands-on work in labs and in the field. Students are expected to design and conduct experiments and problem solve using state-of-the-art computing and analytical tools. This major provides the knowledge, skills and methods an environmental scientist requires as environmental consultant, environmental manager, environmental and/or resource planner, geographic information systems analyst or to facilitate future graduate work.
Focus on environmental interactions from science and social science perspectives. Learn the tools and techniques to evaluate complex biophysical environmental problems including technical skills like remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS), effective data collection, analysis and presentation of information – valuable assets in the world of work.
