The ESM Major Tracks
In the major, students may specialize in one of six tracks, in which they will receive specialized training: (1) Climate Change & Air Quality, (2) Ecology, Biodiversity, & Conservation, (3) Environmental Data Science, (4) Natural Resource Management, (5) Soils & Biogeochemistry, and (6) Watershed Science. We encourage students to work with the major and track advisers to guide them through the major and to help decide which track is the best fit.
Students who started at UC Davis prior to fall 2022 can do either the new or old versions of the Climate Change & Air Quality track or the Watershed Science track and can complete the GIS track. Students who are new to UC Davis starting fall 2022 and forward will want to do the new versions of the tracks and cannot select the GIS track, they will want to do the Environmental Data Science track instead.
