Dear Climate Science and Solutions Professional Science Masters Program Students,

Welcome to the School of Earth Science, and Environmental Sustainability.
On behalf of the faculty and staff, we want to welcome you to the Climate Science and Solutions Professional Science Master’s program. 
We are very proud that the CSS program is an accredited professional science masters program, a new sort of professional program designed to provide students with a foundation in science, and the business and professional skills to excel in your professional career. 
We have designed the CSS program in consultation with leaders in business, non-profits and government to ensure that our graduates are meeting their interdisciplinary workforce needs. The CSS Advisory Board meets annually to review our curriculum, meet our students and ensure our graduates have the skills they need to be successful in the growing climate industry.
The Climate Science and Solutions program builds on NAU’s strengths in forestry, policy and science to ensure you will have a rigorous graduate experience with a professional internship and a professional greenhouse gas inventory experience.
With the assistance of the graduate and career development coordinators, you will have access to one on one assistance in developing your own personal career path. You will also have the opportunity to learn from internationally recognized faculty in climate science, mitigation and adaptation strategies, environmental policy and economics.
I look forward to meeting you.
Paul Umhoefer
