One Major, three Colleges
Environmental Science and Policy (ENSP) is a unique undergraduate major co-sponsored by three Colleges, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences and the College of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences.
All new students begin in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (AGNR), where they learn about the natural sciences and human context of environmental problem-solving while completing a multi-disciplinary "core" and a structured, exploratory advising program. After 2-3 semesters, students choose an area of concentration and move administratively to the College and academic department sponsoring the concentration (below) where they receive faculty advising and advanced training and background. Together, the three Colleges and 8 academic departments enroll 300+ students who aspire to solve the world's greatest environmental challenges.

Approximately half of ENSP students enroll in "science-oriented" concentrations; and half in "policy-oriented" concentrations. All graduates earn a B.S. in Environmental Science and Policy: Concentration in (name of concentration). A two-page PDF summary of ENSP can be found here.
