The Institute at Brown for Environment and Society administers two concentrations, one offering an A. B. degree in Environmental Studies (requires 14-15 courses) and the other a Sc. B. degree in Environmental Science (requires 19-20 courses). The Environmental Science degree is intended for students who have a strong interest in science and a concern for the environment. In common with other ScB concentrators, it is important for an Environmental Science concentrator to begin to meet the requirements of the concentration as soon as possible, and early consultations with the ESci Coordinator (Heather Leslie) is encouraged. The nineteen courses required for the ScB in Environmental Science include: eight environmental core courses, three basic science courses, six focal courses and two thesis courses. Remember that these are minimum requirements, and that many concentrators will want to supplement this minimum with additional courses to strengthen their concentration.
