|Program Student Learning Outcomes|
Upon completion of the program, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of the methods environmental scientists use to explore natural phenomena and human impacts, including observation, hypothesis development, measurement and data collection, experimentation and field research, evaluation of evidence, and employment of appropriate mathematical analysis.
2. Critically evaluate and analyze contemporary environmental problems at the interface of nature, human institutions, and scientific study.
3. Analyze ethical dilemmas raised by environmental science, society, and technology, attempt to identify personal values that affect how one thinks about these dilemmas, and consider diverse perspectives in the process.
4. Demonstrate application of scientific data, concepts, and models in environmental science.
5. Demonstrate and apply an understanding of interdisciplinary explorations and scientific tools and technologies essential for addressing the emerging environmental challenges and opportunities of this century.
