The Department of Environmental Sciences' interdisciplinary and integrative curriculum is designed to equip students with key skills and knowledge to understand and confront complex environmental issues. The curriculum is rooted in the basic disciplines of ecology and conservation, earth science, and social science and policy. Field and integrative courses compel students to synthesize concepts, methods and practice from these essential disciplines. Undergraduate research opportunities and internships are emphasized. The department offers a BA, BS, three minor options, a concentration in Environment and Sustainability Management with the Goizueta Business School, and two 4+1 programs: one BS/MPH with Rollins and a BS/MS program housed within the department.
