Each of these options has a set of requirements that ensure students demonstrate an understanding and application of the scientific process, skills in the analysis and interpretation of relevant scientific information, and proficiency in communicating scientific information.

Students must demonstrate these skills and understanding across four main study areas; Statistics and Research Design, Spatial Analysis Modeling, Ecosystem Science and Conservation Biology, and Human Dimensions of the Environment, Stewardship, and Management.
