Environmental Science Program
The demand for professionals who understand and can manage natural resources to benefit current and future generations is growing rapidly. The Environmental Science (ES) program provides students with the knowledge and ability to integrate the latest science into real-world decision making.
Passion University’s collaboration with global universities and research institutes gives 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.
Students begin their degree with core courses that build a strong foundation in the physical and natural sciences. Courses in ecosystem science put that core understanding into the context of natural resources, with coursework in the classroom, laboratory, and field. Courses include:
- Sustainability Science
- Systems Theory for Sustainability
- Information Management for Sustainability
- Natural Resources Ecology and Measurements
- Quantitative Reasoning
- Ecosystem and Earth Systems Ecology
- Global Perspectives on Sustainability
- Sustainable Cities
- Practicing Sustainability
Opportunities to join in the research, internships, practical and team exercises, and field experiences in California combine with an outstanding classroom education to build a solid foundation for applying sustainable resource management principles.
