Yes

The name of the sustainability-focused, undergraduate degree program (1st program):
Environmental Science and Resource Management (ESRM)

A brief description of the undergraduate degree program (1st program):

ESRM students are grounded in the fundamentals of ecology, physics, and chemistry by examining the intersection between the biological and the physical environments in the lab and field.  Effective management of these natural systems are explored from a variety of social science and humanities perspectives including demography, economics, political science, sociology, literature, and environmental history.  In addition to theoretical underpinnings, our students are trained in a variety of skills necessary for the environmental science professional of the 21st century; Geographic Information Systems, quantitative data analyses and presentation, technical writing, and a variety of field and lab methodologies.  Service Learning and Civic Engagement feature prominently in several of our courses from the introductory level to the advanced.  ESRM graduates leave us with a deep appreciation for the complexities involved in balancing human needs and desires with sustainable use of Earth's renewable and non-renewable resources and the ability to contribute to the effective management of these resources into the future.
