WELCOME TO NDSU ENVIRONMENTAL AND CONSERVATION SCIENCES GRADUATE PROGRAM
The Environmental and Conservation Sciences Graduate Program builds on established research strengths across several colleges and provides a collaborative framework to integrate research and education across disciplines to resolve complex environmental issues facing North Dakota, our nation and the international community in the new century.
One cornerstone of this curriculum is a regular Greenbag Seminar series that provides opportunity for students to interact with professionals "in the trenches." Local professionals as well as nationally recognized experts provide seminars, workshops and mini-courses to ECS students.
