School of Environment, Resources and Sustainability (SERS)

The School of Environment, Resources and Sustainability (SERS) offers programs which focus on sustainability and the ethics of solving environmental and resource problems, ranging from water and food to energy and biodiversity. We use techniques and ideas from many disciplines to seek integrative solutions that cross the boundaries between the natural and social sciences, thereby linking knowledge of resources and ecosystems with sustainability policy and governance.

SERS offers an undergraduate plan (Bachelor of Environmental Studies), a master's plan (Master of Environmental Studies-Thesis option or Major Research Paper Option), and a doctoral plan (Doctor of Philosophy).
