Montana State offers online course on Environmental Risk Assessment

Montana State University has developed a new online graduate course on environmental risk assessment. The course is open to all.
Nov. 2, 2011 - PRLog -- Montana State University has announced a new online course in land resources and environmental sciences called "Environmental Risk Assessment." The three-credit graduate course is offered fully online and begins in January 2012. Participants do not have to be enrolled in an MSU degree program in order to take the course, and off-campus professionals are encouraged to register.

Environmental Risk Assessment is a pilot course for MSU's upcoming new online master's degree in Land Resources and Environmental Sciences, which will debut in Fall 2012. Students who successfully complete LRES 507 may apply the credits toward the new master's degree.

The course covers environmental and biological risk assessment, including case studies on natural resources management, pesticides, biotechnology, natural resource extraction, food safety and invasive species. The instructor is Robert Peterson, MSU professor of entomology, who leads the research, teaching and outreach program in Agricultural and Biological Risk Assessment.

The course is appropriate for environmental law professionals; science teachers; and employees of federal agencies, environmental consulting firms and non-governmental agencies; as well as others interested in environmental science.
