Sustainability, Society & Resource Management

An interdisciplinary major, Sustainability, Society and Resource Management prepares students for dynamic careers in resource management, conservation, environmental protection, risk and crisis management, and public relations. The major is a joint initiative between Biology, Communication, and Geography.

Pittsburg State University is the only Regents institution in Kansas with an interdisciplinary degree program in Sustainability, Society and Resource Management. Unlike any program in the state, the program provides hands-on experience through classroom learning, field exercises, and laboratory experiences with the Geographical Information Systems Laboratory and Communication Research Lab.
