Yes

Name of the sustainability-focused graduate-level degree program:
MSc in Earth System Science

A brief description of the graduate-level degree program:

Climate and environmental issues are increasingly important in today’s society and there is a need for well-trained Master’s level students in these sciences. The M.S. in Earth System Science program provides interdisciplinary training and education to students interested in issues related to the environment and strengthens their capability to conduct research leading to transition of observational and numerical modeling products to public policy and decision making. This M.S. program specifically enables students to gain not only an understanding of the physics of the climate system and the environment but also a working hands-on knowledge of how data and information is used to aid decision makers.
