The TRU Master of Science in Environmental Science provides an integrative, multi-disciplinary approach to the study of the environment. The environment is threatened by global issues, such as overpopulation, climate change and habitat fragmentation. These problems are not solvable by science alone, but by an equal discovery and knowledge of culture, sociology, economics, politics and ethics. Thompson Rivers University is ideally located to study environmental issues because of its proximity to a wide variety of diverse regional ecosystems. The Thompson/Okanagan region and neighboring Cariboo Plateau provide rare native grassland ecosystems, freshwater wetlands, lakes and rivers, and a rich diversity of forested ecosystems, all within easy access of TRU, as well as mountain and ocean ecosystems within a few hours' drive.
