Degrees Offered: BA

The Environmental Studies Program offers a double major in Environmental Science(BA), a minor in Environmental Studies, and several other interdisciplinary courses for students interested in broadening their understanding of environmental issues.

These courses often are team-taught by faculty from various areas of study. Students wishing to major in an environmental program have three options: environmental science (double major only), environmental engineering sciences (see civil and environmental engineering), or environmental policy (see policy studies). In addition, chemical and biomolecular engineering majors may create a focus area in environmental engineering (see chemical and biomolecular engineering) and earth science majors may follow an environmental earth science track (see earth science).

Students seeking advice regarding environmental program in general as well as the minor may contact Dr. Dominic Boyer (dcb2@rice.edu) or the coordinator of the Center for the Study of Energy and Environmental Research in the Human Sciences (cenhs@rice.edu). Students seeking advice regarding the Environmental Science double major may contact Dr. Andre Droxler (andre@rice.edu).
