This department offers all course work designated EVPP and numerous BIOL courses, listed in the Courses chapter of this catalog.
Other Undergraduate Programs
In addition to its own undergraduate programs, the Environmental Science and Policy department also works closely with and provides administrative input to other undergraduate programs.
In concert with the Biology Undergraduate Program, through which the BA and BS degrees in biology are offered, Environmental Science and Policy administers the environmental and conservation biology and the marine and freshwater biology concentrations.
The Concentration in Environmental and Conservation Biology (ESCB) within the BS in Biology is offered to students seeking a biology degree that focuses on ecology and organismal biology and prepares them for graduate work or employment in environmental and conservation fields, such as natural resources management, fisheries, forestry, water quality management, aquatic and wetland ecology, and conservation biology.
The Concentration in Marine and Freshwater Biology within the BS in Biology is offered to students seeking a biology degree that focuses on marine and freshwater biology and prepares them for graduate work or employment in aquatic, marine and fisheries fields.
Refer to the Biology Undergraduate Program section for more information on Biology, BS program and these two concentrations.
Environmental Science and Policy and the department of Geography and Geoinformation Sciences cooperatively offer the BS in Global and Environmental Change. This interdisciplinary undergraduate program, one of the first of its kind in the nation, distinguishes itself from the other degrees in the natural sciences in that it examines from local, regional, and global scales the dynamics of Earth’s systems and their interactions: the geosphere, the atmosphere, the ecosphere, and the sociosphere. Refer to the GGS section for more information on the Global and Environmental Change, BS program.
The Concentration in Environmental Science (EVSC) within the BS in Earth Science degree program is offered by Environmental Science and Policy jointly with the Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Earth Sciences. It is intended for students interested in studying the earth and its environment. Refer to the AOES section for more information on the Earth Science, BS degree program and this concentration.
The Environmental Science and Policy department also offers (jointly with the College of Humanities and Social Sciences) the BA in Environmental and Sustainability Studies , which focuses on the theoretical and practical knowledge of three aspects of environmental and sustainability studies: people, prosperity, and planet. In addition to required core courses, students obtain additional in-depth knowledge in their selected concentration area. This degree prepares students for employment and graduate study in fields related to social justice, business and public policy, and environmental protection as they relate to the environment and sustainability. Students should consult the full set of program requirements by viewing the complete description for the BA in Environmental and Sustainability Studies . The Environmental Science and Policy department administers the following two concentrations:
Other Graduate Programs
In addition to its own graduate programs, the Environmental Science and Policy department also participates in the MS in Earth Systems Science administered primarily through the Department of Geography and Geoinformation Science (GGS). Please see the GGS listing for program requirements.
The Environmental Science and Policy department also offers (jointly with the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution) the Graduate Certificate in Environmental Conflict Resolution and Collaboration , which focuses on a systems approach to environmental conflict and how to understand its legal, regulatory, and ecological implications. Coursework addresses the strategic thinking that is required for assessing and designing appropriate environmental conflict resolution processes, as well as understanding the public interest and the intertwined questions of social justice and sustainability that make environmental conflict particularly important and challenging.
