Areas of Concentration
Environmental Science and Policy (ENSP) is a multi-disciplinary undergraduate major co-sponsored by three Colleges and including eleven areas of concentration. While the Program is administratively housed in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, it is co-sponsored by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences and the College of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences. ENSP students learn about the natural sciences and human context of environmental problem-solving while completing a lower level, multi-disciplinary "core" and a structured, exploratory advising program.
All new ENSP students begin in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. Once students choose their area of concentration, however, they move administratively to the College and academic department sponsoring the concentration.
ENSP Areas of Concentration, listed by Advising College and sponsoring department:
The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (AGNR):
- Environment & Agriculture (PSLA)
- Environmental Economics (AREC)
- Soil, Water & Land Resources (ENST)
- Wildlife Ecology & Management (ENST)
- UNDECLARED in ENSP (AGNR) -- all new students start here, as Undeclared students
The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS):

- Global Environmental Change (GEOG)
- Land Use (GEOG)
- Marine & Coastal Management (GEOG)
- Society & Environmental Issues (SOCY) - Discontinued. At this time we are not accepting new students into this concentration.
Approximately half of ENSP students enroll in "science-oriented" concentrations; and half in "policy-oriented" concentrations.
