The PhD in Natural Resources and Sustainability is a new UAF doctoral program in natural resources and sustainability.

The program centers around three thematic areas: i) resource economics, ii) resource policy and sustainability science, and iii) forest and agricultural sciences. It is a joint PhD program with the School of Management and the School of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences, and builds on several university and national initiatives, including the Resilience and Adaptation Program, EPSCoR (Phase 3) Resilience and Vulnerability of a Rapidly Changing North, the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy, and the Scenarios Network for Alaska Planning project.
