Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)

ESUR is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program.

This is the first IGERT to focus on the problems at the core of ecosystem service science and management and urbanization interactions. ESUR trainees will complete a 2-week Summer Institute, 4 core courses (Ecological Concepts of Ecosystem Services, Impacts of Social Policy and Management Practices on Ecosystem Practices, Dynamics of Ecosystem Services, and I ntegrated Ecosystem Service Valuation), discussion-based seminars, a proposal writing seminar, and have the opportunity to co-teach an undergraduate course on ecosystem services. In certain Ph.D. programs at PSU, trainees may count some IGERT courses toward their course requirements. ESUR Trainees must also include at least one co-authored dissertation chapter on an interdisciplinary topic.
