Master of Science in Environmental Sciences
||Faculty of Science
|Field of Study:
||The environment is a complex of biological, geological, physical, chemical, social and cultural factors that interact to influence the life of an individual or community. Our environment is threatened by global issues, such as overpopulation, global climate change, and habitat fragmentation. Many of these are issues caused by humans, and in turn they are threatening the very well being of humans. The problems we face today are not solvable by science alone, but by an equal discovery and knowledge of culture, sociology, economics, politics and ethics. The TRU Master of Science in Environmental Science provides an integrative, multi-disciplinary approach to the study of the environment.
