The Master of Environmental Management (MEM) degree in the Environmental Science and Management Department provides a curriculum that develops scientists, managers, and educators who are able to analyze and understand environmental systems, predict environmental change and participate in the management of the environment. MEM students complete a project with scope and effort similar to a thesis but with more flexibility of topic and design, including in-depth study of an appropriate problem. These projects are conducted in collaboration with a community partner (e.g. government agency, non-governmental organization, private sector) that addresses a relevant and timely environmental issue. This collection includes the final project reports that have been reviewed and approved by the student's graduate committee.
