Built on the concept that environmental issues are inherently interdisciplinary, the program is offered jointly by the department of biological sciences in the College of Science and by the department of science, technology, and society in the College of Liberal Arts. The curriculum is designed to provide students with a deep understanding of the complex set of circumstances that impact environmental issues, and how environmental decisions and policies attempt to find a balance between environmental conservation and economic development. Students combine their hands-on classroom work with experiential learning (research, internships). These experiences give students the chance to work on real-world environmental problems under the guidance of talented and skilled environmental scientists.
