Environment & Natural Resources over students in international settings

Environment & Natural Resources (ENR) Bachelor of Science

Graduate major + concurrent degree

As an ENR graduate student, you will take classes and conduct research in wide ranging areas of environmental significance, such as cultural studies, ecology, economics, law and politics, and management. Your ENR core courses will complement those studies by providing interdisciplinary perspective and problem-solving approaches. You will collaborate and learn with students of diverse disciplinary training, backgrounds, and aspirations to critically evaluate the multiple dimensions of complex environmental challenges.


The graduate major in ENR prepares you to:

  • Think across disciplines when addressing environmental challenges
  • Understand environmental challenges from diverse perspectives
  • Collaborate on practical solutions to environmental challenges


At the beginning of your studies, you will select a suite of approved ENR elective courses that span disciplinary perspectives outside your primary area of study. You will also compose a narrative justification outlining how your selected courses meet your professional and academic interests and embody the goals of the ENR program.
