Transdisciplinary Research on Environment and Society (TREES)
The TREES dual-title graduate degree program prepares student researchers and designers to bring a broad base of state-of-the-art methodologies, theories, and technologies for addressing contemporary natural resource and societal challenges, including but not limited to challenges related to the following:
- global climate change
- sustainable energy, food, and fiber supplies
- threats to biodiversity
- water pollution and availability
- genetic modification
- sustainable design
TREES's philosophical foundation embraces the premise that solutions to such challenges require the integration of biophysical, sociodemographic, sociocultural, and historical dimensions.
