Posted: Updated:

MURRAY, Ky. (AP) - Murray State University will offer a new graduate-level program in sustainability science this fall.

The school says the decision to offer a new master's of science degree in sustainability science comes as students show an increased interest in a cleaner earth and a healthier environment.

Robert Pervine, the school's associate provost for graduate education and research, says the program will include mandatory core courses and electives.

The school says elective courses will be in agriculture, chemistry, biology, mathematics, geology, occupational safety and health and education.

Pervine says the program can be tailored for a variety of interests, including environmental or agricultural sustainability.
