The Ecosystem Science and Sustainability (ESS) degree program provides students with the knowledge and ability to integrate the latest science into real-world decision making. Our affiliation with CSU’s Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory, with a 45-year history of world-class ecosystem research, gives undergraduate students opportunities to gain hands-on research experience while developing solutions to today’s most pressing challenges. Learn about the challenges humans face in sustainably managing ecosystem services, but also about the amazing ways in which organisms interact with their environments to form complex ecosystems, and cutting-edge integrative solutions for sustainability.
