Students in the MS in Ecology and Sustainability Program at C.S.U.Stanislaus gain the knowledge and skills to prepare them for successful careers in fields that contribute solutions to environmental and sustainability issues. Our society, and California in particular, has an urgent need for professionals with deep ecological insight who can manage systems to ensure the long-term sustainability of human and ecosystem health. The MS in Ecology and Sustainability is a thesis-based, 2 year degree program with two possible concentrations: (1) Ecological Conservation, and (2) Ecological Economics. Students study and conduct field and laboratory research in a variety of systems, including nearby habitats such as wetlands, grasslands, rivers, oak forests, and marine ecosystems, as well as in agricultural lands, urban areas, restored ecosystems, and social/economic systems.
