Why Environment and Natural Resources (ENR)?

We broaden your scholarly perspective by exposing you to new disciplines so that you can undertake the transformative work of interdisciplinary problem solving. ENR is a training ground for the real world, where diverse groups of people come together to tackle pressing environmental and natural resource questions. Join an inclusive environment where students from political science, cultural studies, sociology, economics, art and business learn from top-notch faculty in collaboration. Seize opportunities to study and work abroad, take field courses, and complete a hands-on internship, and discover an educational experience that is rewarding both inside the classroom and beyond.
