Ecosystem Sustainability (Ph.D.)


Many physical, ecological, and social factors interact to shape the future of our ecosystems and societies. CSU’s innovative graduate program in Ecosystem Sustainability enables students to develop core competencies in ecosystem science—the study of organisms and the environment—and apply that knowledge to address real-world issues. We help develop leaders in sustainability science: a new generation of practitioners able to address complex, integrated social and ecological problems, in collaborative partnerships with researchers, resource users and decision-makers.
