ESM 296-1F

Advanced Special Topics in Environmental Management: Science and Management for Forest Sustainability

Joan Dudney

Units: 2


This course provides a graduate-level introduction to forest sustainability from an applied interdisciplinary research and environmental problem-solving perspective. The course meets weekly, with each week covering a different aspect of forest science (e.g., forest ecohydrology) or management (e.g., wildfire policy). The material will be covered through readings as well as lectures and discussions led by faculty experts from the Bren School and beyond. In addition, students will develop a research proposal (PhD) or group project proposal (MESM) related to forest sustainability. Students will present their proposal in the final week of the course; in the past, many of the proposals have been selected to launch as Group Projects the following spring.
