The earth is witnessing environmental change that is unique in its history. Increased levels of greenhouse gases are warming the planet; the extinction of species is occurring at an ever-faster rate; holes in the ozone layer are exposing us to harmful radiation. These are all the unintended consequences of human activity. Rather than continue on this path, we must learn about these consequences to better manage our interaction with natural systems. Our one-year Master of Public Administration program emphasizes integrated thinking and learning so that our graduates will see beyond linear and fragmented approaches to coping with environmental problems.
Our goal is to cultivate a new profession that manages earth systems in ways that will ensure the long-term viability of life on our planet.
