Course content

-To provide students with an understanding of how knowledge is transferred into action with regard to the environment
-To develop an appreciation of the role of science in informing that process, and the role of political, socio-economic, and ethical judgments in influencing that process
-To provide a forum whereby graduate students in environment throughout the University bring their disciplinary perspectives together and enrich each other's learning through structured courses, formal seminars, and informal discussions and networking.

Through the formal courses, seminars and research, the Environment Option adds a layer of interdisciplinarity that will challenge the students to explain and defend their research and thinking in a broader context. Thus, within an interdisciplinary context, students graduating with an Environment Option should:
-Be able to describe in general terms the major environmental problems facing the world, including the implications for the natural world and all that live within it
-Be able to describe in more detail at least one important environmental problem occurring on an international, national, regional, and/or local scale
-Be able to critically summarize and analyze the known, perceived, and predicted consequences of the selected environmental example
-Be able to analyze from several perspectives (e.g., social, cultural, scientific, technological, ethical, economic, political, legislative) the reasons how and why the selected environmental problem arose
-Be able to describe and critically assess at least two approaches to solving or alleviating the selected environmental problem with regard to both the practicality and morality
-Be able to effectively communicate their research findings to non-specialist audiences
-Be familiar with various tools for environmental decision-making, as well their strengths and limitations
-Appreciate that environmental problems are complex and invariably involve uncertainty, and that the choice among possible responses is influenced by multiple legitimate perspectives, and in turn influences many actors
