These programs strive to offer the flexibility necessary to deal with the environment through a set of core courses that provide the general knowledge base of the program combined with a progressive series of courses in a trans-disciplinary area of environmental specialization, referred to as a domain.

The programs are designed to prepare students for further study in environment or discipline-based graduate programs, and for employment in industry, government, and education.
