The Professional Science Master’s in Environmental Management and Sustainability at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas prepares future environmental managers to manage ecological issues through the combined disciplines of environmental science and project management. The program has been designed to provide students with an in-depth knowledge of ecosystems and to enhance their ability to apply tools and methods for assessing the effects of an increasing human impact of ecosystems. Project management and Geographic Information Systems software will be used to help design, execute, monitor and control a project in ecological research.  Field research components at St. Edward’s Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve and three biological research stations in Costa Rica provides each student with the opportunity to conduct fieldwork in four different ecosystems in two different countries.  The curriculum consists of three semesters of coursework at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas, a one-month field research course in Costa Rica in the summer after the first year and a required internship, conducted during the spring and/or summer of the second year of the program.
