Students learn the basic concepts in conservation biology, politics, policy and planning and how these fields interact in the real world. Biologists with a basic understanding of how policy relates to the goals of preservation and conservation are essential to conservation efforts. The program, with its multidisciplinary approach, allows students to examine decision-making processes as both scientists and policy analysts.
The mission of the Masters Program (MRP) in Urban and Regional Planning is to provide education for professional planning practice, to research and publish on planning-related issues, and to apply planning methods to improve the quality of life in communities and regions. The Program is interdisciplinary, student-centered and participative, integrating scholarship and practice. It emphasizes the importance of creativity, public involvement, social justice, professional ethics, and environmental sustainability.
The unifying idea of modern geography is the study of spatial patterns in the cultural and physical features of the earth's surface. The program includes an interdisciplinary combination of classes in urban, social, cultural and economic geography; climate and environmental systems; geographic information systems, remote sensing, cartography, computer applications and spatial analysis.

The purpose of the graduate certificate program is to provide graduate students in various disciplines, and continuing students working in government and private agencies, with professional and technical training in Geographic Information Systems and in associated techniques of spatial analysis. Various quantitative techniques of spatial analysis are used in bringing GIS products to bear on a wide range of problems, which include analysis of satellite imagery for applications in resource management, agriculture, forestry, and urban planning; land use mapping; computer map analysis and graphics; market area analysis; display of socio-economic data; and a host of other applications ranging from archeology to the analysis of acid rain.
The Certificate is designed to equip graduate students, doctors, and other public health professionals with an in-depth understanding of the complexities and realities of global health. Participants of the program will enhance their capacity to design, manage, support and evaluate global health interventions. Global health involves the most fundamental values of society: social justice and health equity; collaboration and partnerships; capacity building; and ethical reasoning. Students of global health will acquire competencies that can be applied in both international and domestic settings, including project management, strategic analysis, and social, cultural, and political awareness. Students in this program are required to take EHS 607 Global Environmental Health Policy
